Southwest Michigan Horticultural Days

The annual Southwest Michigan Horticultural Days conference was held Feb. 6-7 at Lake Michigan College’s Mendel Center in Benton Harbor by the Michigan Grape Society and Michigan State University (MSU) Extension in partnership with Lake Michigan College.

Discussion of production issues was led by MSU Extension agents, fruit growers, and university researchers. Educational sessions were held on both days covering issues for production of tree fruits, vegetables, blueberries and grapes on both days. The event also features a trade show.
