Commercial Vegetable Growers are invited to the 2021 Central Maryland Vegetable Growers Meeting on Thursday, January 28, 2021.

Due to COVID-19, we will be offering winter meetings online via Zoom, limited in-person seating, or you may watch the recorded webinars at a later date. 

This meeting serves as Recertification for Maryland private pesticide applicators and offers recertification credits for Pennsylvania recertification. Also, producers can attend specific presentations to renew their Maryland nutrient applicator’s voucher.

The doors will open at 8:00 am and presentations begin at 8:30 am and will end by 1:00 pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, lunch will not be available.
