Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
The latest information on citrus disease control, labor management, new varieties and best practices for grove operations are the focus of the 2012 Florida Citrus Show, sponsored by Florida Grower magazine, the Indian River Citrus League and the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. The show will be held Jan. 25-26, 2012, at the Havert L. Fenn Center in Ft. Pierce, Florida.
The Florida Citrus Show features a comprehensive lineup of educational sessions designed specifically for Florida growers and packers interested in learning about the latest trends that directly impact their businesses. This year, industry experts will share their knowledge on everything from replanting groves, Asian citrus psyllid and HLB management techniques, and new variety development as well as an economic outlook for the citrus industry.
“The Florida Citrus Show continues to grow based on an outstanding education program and trade show where growers can interact in one location with vendors of products and services they need,” says Gerry Bogdon, associate publisher of Meister Media Worldwide’s Horticulture Group. “The 2012 Show will reflect the optimism growers are feeling due to stronger prices and good signs we can learn to live with HLB.”
In addition, The Florida Citrus Show includes a large trade show with nearly 80 suppliers exhibiting the latest products and service innovations. The tradeshow and educational sessions are all under one roof, providing multiple opportunities for networking with other participants.
Admission to the educational sessions and trade show is free to qualified growers. Exhibit space also is available. This year, large equipment will be allowed inside the tradeshow hall.
