Reasons to Attend the 2022 Florida Ag Expo
According to the 2022 Florida Ag Expo website—which is free to all growers, farm owners, and decision-makers—there are five main benefits to attending the Ag Expo. They are:
- Extensive Seminar Sessions. “The Florida Ag Expo seminar program brings the latest agricultural information and research to growers. The seminar planning committee has worked to bring growers insight on the most pressing issues in the agriculture industry. Sessions will begin at 8:45 a.m. following breakfast. Concurrent CEU sessions will start at 12:30 p.m. with one session focusing on pest management and the other on breeding programs at the GCREC.”
- Field Tours. “Growers will have the opportunity to see the newest production techniques in the field. Rather than just learning about crops in sessions, growers can see research firsthand in the field. Field tours will begin at 2:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.”
- Large Trade Show. “One of the best parts of the event is seeing the newest technologies available from agricultural vendors in the trade show. Growers will have the opportunity to network with suppliers and bring back new ideas.”
- Beer Tasting. “…Taste beer made from Florida-grown hops coming from Grand Central Brewing in St. Petersburg, FL. Growers will have the chance to see the unique method of growing hops and try the finished product. A beer tasting will take place at the end of the event in the hops yard, immediately following the field tours.”
- You Could Win a John Deere Gun Safe! “All preregistered growers are eligible for a chance to win a John Deere gun safe, courtesy of Everglades Equipment Group.” Preregister here by Friday October 28, 2022 at 11:59 A.M.!
