New York State Berry Growers Association Winter Regional Workshops

As dramatic weather events increase, pest pressure intensifies, and local markets vitalize, New York berry growers are looking for ways to protect their crop and lengthen their season.

Growers and educators are researching techniques for growing berries under cover. These day-long workshop will feature multiple short presentations, interactive activities, and words from growers discussing the newest research in tunnels and exclusion netting.

The price for the workshop is $25 for NYSBGA members and $50 for Non-Members. This includes lunch, refreshments and a comprehensive resource manual describing Protected Culture research and innovations. Additional registrations from the same farm are $25/person.

DEC Credits in categories 1a, 10 and 22 are available.
