Greetings,

 

We are about a week away from the Florida Blueberry Growers Association Fall Seminar taking place in Plant City on Tuesday, October 7, 2014.  If you plan to attend and haven’t pre-registered, please do so ASAP by following the link: http://floridablueberrygrowers.com/sample-page/upcoming-meetings/.  I look forward to seeing everyone in Plant City.

 

As a follow-up to the hydrogen cyanamide workshop last year, there will be a “Attaining Optimum Blueberry Yield” Workshop occurring at the UF/IFAS – Lake County Office in Tavares, FL starting at 11:30 AM.  I have placed a link to the program Agenda, including the pre-registration link, below:

Even though temperatures are still warm, it is inevitable that most of us will have freeze protection on our mind before you know it.  Once again, we are offering the Central Florida Weather Watch resource to assist growers track threatening cold air masses as they approach the state.  The link below leads to the 2014-15 Central Florida Weather Watch resource.  If you plan to participate in the program, please follow the instructions on the form.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thank you,
