On Dec 1, attend our exciting Florida Fruit Field Day. Take a relaxing and fun tour with us. We’re renting a comfortable luxury coach to transport our group on this information-filled day that includes three farm stops, a delicious lunch from the famous Johnson’s Barbeque and refreshments throughout the day.
We’ll be stopping at successful fruit and vegetable farms to see how these farms are improving the quality and health of their soil and their crops by employing nutrition farming techniques.
Pepper Berry Farm PLANT CITY, FL
You’ll get a chance to explore strawberries and peppers grown on a carbon-rich program for improved nutrient availability and uptake. We’ll discuss soil profiles and demonstrate taking and reading field tests and measurements pertaining to plant nutrient content.
Fancy Farms PLANT CITY, FL
We’ll discuss the farm programs in practice including the use of biologicals to reduce the need for fungicides. We’ll read field tests and see the positive effects of biologicals on controlling disease and insects.
Guardian Soil Solutions Citrus Research Grove HOWEY IN THE HILLS, FL
Visit an orange grove to witness the difference between trees grown using a conventional citrus program vs. a nutritional/biological program and the effect of each on growth, tree longevity, production and fruit quality and storability.
