Empire State Producers Expo Virtual Conference 2022 set

The New York State Vegetable Growers Association (NYSVGA) announced the Empire State Producers Expo Virtual Conference 2022 event will be held virtually on Feb. 21- March 11.

NYSVGA made the following announcement:

“After postponing the in-person 2022 Empire State Producers Expo due to the spike in COVID-19 numbers in early January, we are happy to announce plans for a virtual Expo. The sessions are spread out over a three-week period, starting Monday, Feb. 21. One or two sessions will run each day, starting at 11:45 a.m. Attendees can join for a short time each day, rather than sitting in front of a computer for eight hours at a time.

“Altogether, 27 sessions are planned, and most sessions include DEC credits.  Sessions will focus on weed management, soil health, IPM tomatoes, hemp, brassicas, snap beans, sweet corn, cut flowers, and greenhouses. New this year are sessions on agroforestry, pesticide safety, lanternflies, and  labor – how to prepare for H-2A audits and Creating Positive workplaces. We will also have a session providing guidance on the water withdrawal permits.

“The New York State Vegetable Growers Association continues its commitment to educating all farmers, even during these unprecedented times. We are looking forward to bringing in new and exciting speakers who have not been available to us in the past. The conference will be available online to those who register. DEC credits will be available.

“A full session list is available and registration is open. Please visit the NYSVGA website, WWW.NYSVGA.Org for updates on the conference . We look forward to seeing you all in person in 2023.”

“If you have any questions please contact the NYSVGA at 585-993-0775 or email [email protected]
