Georgia Strawberry Growers Annual Meeting

Make plans to attend the Georgia Strawberry Grower’s Association Annual Meeting on August 9th at 10 am.

This year’s meeting will once again be held at the Georgia Farm Bureau headquarters on Bass Road in Macon.  Thanks to everyone at Georgia Farm Bureau for helping with this event.  The meeting is open to members as well as non-members (just be ready to be handed a membership application).

This year’s meeting will focus on both disease control and resistance management.  Guido Schnabel (Clemson University, Plant Pathology) and Natalia Peres (The University of Florida, Plant Pathology) will discuss disease control, resistance monitoring, and disease forecasting.

Ian Flitcroft from the UGA Automated Weather Network will discuss how the weather network can benefit growers and how it is being used to test disease forecasting models in Georgia.

The meeting will begin at 10 am and conclude by 2 pm.
