Hort Conference is scheduled for January 23-24

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Indiana Horticulture Conference and Exposition will be Jan. 23-24 at the Beck Farm Center in West Lafayette.

The event offers educational sessions and networking opportunities for both beginning and advanced fruit and vegetable growers.

“After two years of virtual Indiana Horticulture Conference webinars, we are thrilled to be able to meet Indiana’s Midwestern fruit and vegetable growers in person,” said Stephen Meyers, IHC Co-Chair.

“Events like this are a great way to connect and provide updates with the stakeholders and industries we serve. They also allow us to get feedback on how future Purdue research and delivery efforts can have a greater impact.”

Attendees can learn about small-scale fruit production, apple production, food safety, fresh produce, controlled environment agriculture and commercial marketing.

Other highlights include:

• Indiana cider makers bring their best brews to the traditional cider competition.

• A silent auction will be held to benefit the Fruit and Vegetable Extension and Research Fund.

• Trade shows connect participants with suppliers of equipment, seeds, irrigation and more.

• Certified personal pesticide applicators may attend recertification sessions for an additional fee. Participants will need a personal applicant authorization number to receive recertification credit.
