Hort Pest Credits

Hort Pest Credits

Hort Pest Credits. I’m Greg Martin with today’s Fruit Grower Report.

The 108th annual meeting of the Washington State Horticultural Association is coming up December 3rd, 4th and 5th at the convention center in Yakima along with the NW Hort Expo at the Sundome. Stephanie Chance, Communications Director for Hort says they are offering pesticide credits again this year.

CHANCE: Well we had submitted them to the Washington State Department of Agriculture and we submitted the sessions we thought appropriate for credits and were approved. So there’s 4 credits that will be available in Spanish and there will be 4 credits that are available in English.

She talks about some of the highlights of this year’s meeting.

CHANCE: Our president this year, David Douglas, signed up and incredible speaker, Jolene Brown, and she will be giving the Batjer address which is “Stop the Fighting on the Way to the Funeral Home” which is perfect for our theme this year which is “Succession Planning.” We have a strong lineup from there on out for all the different crops we have.

The Hort convention trades every other year between Wenatchee and Yakima. Chance talks about registration.

CHANCE: It’s been open and it will be available all the way up to the convention. People can register at the door as well and our forms are available on our website which is www.wahort.org and they can just click on Annual Meeting and the registration forms are on there.

The meeting is also a great opportunity to meet up with friends and colleagues.
