New Opportunity for IPPS Members to Share
The Second International Vegetable Grafting Symposium will be held July 14-18, 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Globally, preparing grafted vegetable plants engages an increasing number of technical, industry, organizational, and academic personnel. Plant propagation is the core of the process which remains a source of difficult questions and exciting opportunities. IPPS members are being encouraged to add their insights and voice to the program as presenters and/or contributors to the discussion as attendees.  The abstract deadline is Feb 28 th so act quickly! Check out conference details HERE or contact Dr. Matt Kleinhenz  , OSU/OARDC Vegetable Production Systems Extension Specialist.
