Greenhouse Tomato Short Course
If you are a grower of greenhouse tomatoes, or if you have interest in growing this crop, mark your calendar now for the 23rd Annual Greenhouse Tomato Short Course. Participating in this program will be the best way to learn all about producing greenhouse tomatoes.
The next Greenhouse Tomato Short Course will be held at the Eagle Ridge Conference Center, 1500 Raymond Lake Road, Raymond, Mississippi on March 5 and 6, 2013. Expert speakers will present seminars on a variety of fields relevant to the production of greenhouse tomatoes.
Special topics this year will be components of the greenhouse system, greenhouse design and engineering, alternative heating options, marketing, budget for greenhouse growers, updates on the latest research, plant nutrition, alternative crops, water sanitation, and of course the pest management workshop, which will include physiological disorders, diagnosing plant problems, plant disease identification and control, and pest management.
Exhibitors from across the U.S. and Canada will be available to show you their products and discuss how to use them. All aspects of production will be thoroughly covered. Plan on attending this Short Course to learn all you need to know about this crop and run a successful greenhouse business. In recent years, the Short Course attracted participants from more than 25 states and several Caribbean and Latin American countries.
The Greenhouse Tomato Short Course continues to be the best deal around! Compare this program to others that cost well over $500 to register. Advance registration is $150 (use registration form in mailed packet or online with a credit card), or, if you prefer, you can pay $175 at the door, per person for the entire Short Course.
Advance registration is encouraged so that the number of meals can be estimated accurately and must be received by February 22.
The registration fee includes coffee, refreshments, three meals, all Extension publications, and some very special promotional items. All those who preregister will also receive the latest edition of the Greenhouse Tomato Short Course cap as well as the one-of-a-kind tomato coffee mug.
Funds for this project were provided through the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce, USDA Specialty Crop Grant Program.
