Welcome to #Grow19! (as we wrap up #Plant19). I wanted to make you aware of some upcoming workshops/meetings for potato field staff/producers (see below). Registration for the Potato Scouting Workshop will be open next week. If you have any questions, let me know.
Potato Scouting Workshop
This year’s Potato Scouting Workshop will be held on July 2nd at the Emerald Rec Centre (1910 Nodd Road). Participants will learn pest identification, scouting safety, new scouting tools, and scouting tips from experienced crop scouts.
The workshop will run from 9-2 (registration at 8:30am), and will be immediately followed by the first Potato Fieldworker Meeting of the season.
Registration Fee: $20 (at the door)
