The annual meeting of the Midwest Nut Producers Council is a great opportunity for new growers to learn about the chestnut industry and current growers to learn about optimizing productivity. The meeting 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.

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 of the Midwest Nut Producers Council at this meeting, your membership will also entitle you to attend the rooted cuttings workshop in June for only a nominal lunch fee.
