Upcoming Potato Meetings for Field Staff/Growers

Hello everyone,

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.
