The 34th Annual Eastern Shore Agricultural Conference and Trade show will be held Wednesday, January 24th and Thursday, January 25th at the Exmore Moose Lodge, 15315 Merry Cat Ln, Belle Haven, VA 23306. The event is hosted by Virginia Cooperative Extension and The Association of Eastern Virginia Agricultural Producers, Inc. and is free and open to the public.
We are excited to announce we have a compelling agenda for this year’s sessions with educational programs focusing on soybeans, potatoes, agronomic crops, and vegetable crops discussing the most relevant information and research to benefit your production systems. This year’s speakers will include Virginia Tech Extension Specialists from the ESAREC, TAREC and Blacksburg, as well as invited presenters from other universities and supporting industry.
We encourage you to take full advantage of our program by attending our educational sessions, visiting exhibitors and network with agribusiness-men and women from all over the region. As always, make sure to register to obtain pesticide license recertification credits for commercial and private categories in both Virginia and Maryland.
We also are happy to announce an outstanding general session on Wednesday, January 24th that will include keynote speaker Greg Edwards providing updates on exports from Virginia ports as well as Virginia Tech Provost Cyril Clarke, Dr. Mike Gutter from Virginia Cooperative Extension, Commissioner of Agriculture Joseph Guthrie, and Governor Glenn Youngkin, among others.
