Are you a strawberry grower or interested in strawberry production and would like to connect with other producers? Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is hosting a Strawberry Production Q&A Session on March 13, 2018 at the Agriculture Building, 5030 - 50 Street in Lacombe, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
This interactive question and answer session provides new and existing strawberry producers an opportunity to ask questions and discuss production challenges.
Each half-hour session will cover topics picked by the attendees. "We're going to tackle seven to eight different topics about production," says Robert Spencer, commercial horticultural specialist at the Ag-Info Centre.
Some of the topics to be discussed include varieties, establishment practices, overwintering, fertility management, pest management, renovation, and bearing season management.
"But there could be other topics," adds Spencer. "If someone has a very specific concern or they're saying that they're really struggling with a particular area, we'll talk about that, and we'll draw on the collective wisdom of the group."
The Strawberry Production Q&A Session is free, but space is limited. Register by calling the Ag-Info Centre at 1-800-387-6030. Bring your own bag lunch.
