The 2019 Southeastern Apple Growers Meeting is rapidly approaching and the program and meeting arrangements are ready to go! The date for the 2019 meeting is Tuesday and Wednesday January 8-9. This year we will be back at the DoubleTree By Hilton Asheville – Biltmore. Your review comments have all been positive and the DoubleTree is a newer hotel with a great atmosphere, history, indoor pool, in house TGIF restaurant with other chains within easy walking distance. It is also easier to access the hotel right off I-40 at exit 50 with plenty of free parking in front and behind the hotel. Be sure to book your room early and let them know that you are with the SE Apple Growers Meeting to guarantee a reduced rate. In addition to the two days of educational programs, commercial exhibitors, and entertaining banquet, is the opportunity to meet with other growers.
The educational session will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 8th and conclude on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 9th with the exhibits open both days. We will have our annual banquet on Tuesday evening, with after dinner entertainment provided.
This year’s educational program includes speakers with a wide range of expertise. On the first day of the program we will have an emphasis on topics of importance such as marketing, food safety and labor. On the second day, we will address orchard management issues and production related topics such as weed, pest management and orchard management strategies, past present and future. We have invited speakers, in addition to those from the southeast that provide information as well as several grower panels to pass on valuable information. It is exciting to have the NCSU apple team expanding over the past several years and participating in this meeting. Pesticide recertification credit will be available at the end of the program on Wednesday, January 9th.
