2022 Oceana Asparagus Day planned for March 10

Michigan State University Extension will be holding the 2022 Oceana Asparagus Day on March 10 at the New Era Reformed Church in New Era, Michigan.

Asparagus growers and industry professionals will hear industry updates, market outlooks and various disease and insect management practicies. Special guest speaker is Ludger Aldenhoff of Germany, who will provide a talk on “What have German growers learned by testing asparagus root tissue for nutrients.”

A small trade show will be part of this year’s event that will allow attendees to visit with various ag industry related businesses.  Although time has been provided on the agenda for attendees to visit the trade show, attendees do have the freedom to visit throughout the day.
