Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association

2021 Virtual Grower Education Conference

Tue, Feb 02 - Wed, Feb 03 | @ Virtual via Zoom

Register today to attend the Virtual 2021 UW-Madison Division of Extension and WPVGA Grower Education Conference on February 2-3, 2021.

An online platform will host pre-recorded video presentations by all invited speakers, and those same speakers will appear live via zoom at their scheduled presentation times. The conference will run from 8:20 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 2 and again from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Every effort has been made to bring outstanding speakers and topics of interest to potato and vegetable growers.

All WPVGA funded researchers will provide a research report on the conference website. These reports will be in pdf format and will represent a summary of the research progress. Research reports will be compiled and included in the 2021 Conference Proceedings. Complete Proceedings will be available online and printed copies will also be available via mail upon request.

The Annual Industry Show will not be held in person in 2021. In its place, up to ten WPVGA Associate Division exhibitor presentations will be scheduled during the Grower Education Conference on Feb. 2-3. The exhibitor presentations will consist of ten-minute videos along with live, virtual presenters. These presentations will feature products or services that are either new or newly relevant in light of current issues facing our industry and will clearly demonstrate how the product or service brings value to growers.

The annual Industry Awards Banquet will also not be held in person in 2021. Industry awards will be presented virtually, via zoom during the Grower Education Conference.
