Are you planning a trip to Niagara Falls to attend the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention this winter? OMAFRA’s vegetable team has put together an educational program for field vegetable growers and industry personnel that should make the trip well worthwhile.
The conference runs February 22-23, and has moved this year to the Scotiabank Convention Centre (6815 Stanley Avenue) in Niagara Falls. This location doubles the space available for the tradeshow, compared to the previous site.
The vegetable session features a focus on vegetable disease the morning of February 22, followed by weed management in the afternoon. On day 2, the morning program focuses on sweet corn (although growers of other crops will find the session useful as well), with the afternoon dedicated to topics of general interest across the vegetable sector.

Online registration is available this year, as well as registration by email, mail, or fax. Learn more at http://www.ofvc.ca/.
