Commercial fruit, vegetable seminar

The LSU AgCenter will conduct a seminar for commercial fruit and vegetable growers Saturday, March 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Caddo Parish Extension Office, 2408 E. 70th St. in Shreveport, La.

The educational program is for commercial growers at all levels, both start-up and experienced, said Denyse Cummins, LSU AgCenter horticulturist.

The program will include presentations on weed control, vegetable varieties, soil improvement and scheduling for season-long production.

A marketing panel of produce buyers — chefs, market managers and buyers — will answer questions about buyers’ needs.

The event is free and open to the public.

To register or for more information, contact Cummins at (318) 698-0010.
