Delaware Agricultural Week 2012 began on Monday evening January 16, at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington. Tuesday marked the first full day of exhibits from local and regional vendors, several sessions including Delmarva hay and pasture, grain marketing, equine pasture and nutrient management, and presentations from the Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association of Delaware (FVGAD). Spanning three facilities, Exhibition Hall, Dover Building and Commodities Building, attendees escaped the rain, met with friends and colleagues, exchanged information and resources and took in a little bit of Delaware’s agriculture history at the First State Antique Tractor Club. Events continue through the week and include nutrient management sessions both in Harrington and at the Carvel Research and Education Center in Georgetown.
Carvel personnel in attendance throughout the week include: Dr. Mark Isaacs, Tracy Wootten, Dr. Mark VanGessel, Dr. Kate Everts, Dr. Gordon Johnson, Dr. Cory Whaley, Emmalea Ernest, James Adkins, Bill Brown and other Extension staff and UD researchers from New Castle and Kent County.
Delaware Ag Week is organized by the University of Delaware, Delaware State University and Delaware Department of Agriculture. This year marks the seventh consecutive Ag Week.
