Midwest Nut Producers Council annual meeting scheduled for March 14, 2015
This meeting is a great opportunity for new growers to learn about getting started in the chestnut industry and current growers to learn about optimizing productivity.
The annual meeting of the Midwest Nut Producers Council will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, 2015, at the Clarksville Research Station in Clarksville, Michigan, 9302 Portland Road, Clarksville, MI 48815. This meeting is free to members who remit their $50 in dues at the door (one per family or farm). The meeting will cover the priorities of the chestnut industry, including a chestnut blight update and a discussion of how yields were affected by the winter of 2013-14. If you choose to become a member at this meeting, your membership will also entitle you to attend the rooted cuttings workshop in June for only a nominal lunch fee.
Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by calling Erin Lizotte, Michigan State University Extension, at 231-944-6504 to make arrangements. Requests will be met when possible.
