Welcome to Delaware Ag Week 2015

Dear Agricultural Producer,

UD’s James Adkins, Michelle Rodgers, Cory Whaley and Phil Sylvester at last year’s Delaware Ag Week. UD shares the planning of Delaware Ag Week with Delaware State University and the Delaware Department of Agriculture

Please mark your calendars for Delaware Agriculture Week, January 12-16, 2015. Delaware “Ag Week” is in its 10th year and is an ongoing collaboration between University of Delaware Cooperative Extension, Delaware State University Cooperative Extension and the Delaware Department of Agriculture.

Delaware Ag Week provides useful and timely information to the agricultural community and industry through educational meetings and events. In addition, it is a great time for networking and fellowship with old and new acquaintances. There will be many opportunities to receive nutrient management, pesticide and certified crop advisor continuing education credits.

During Ag Week, there will be a wide variety of great sessions, exhibits, and activities.  Our session committees have once again pulled together great topics and speakers.  This year, Ag Week will begin on Monday evening with the Fruit session and Beef session.  Please take a look through the program book and make note of the new and timely sessions for this year.  These new sessions include:  Agriculture Best Management Practices Financing, Weathering These Changing Times, Soil Health, and Growing Delaware’s Agriculture in Urban Communities.

The main meeting area will be located in the Exhibit Hall this year.  A great Trade Show will take place in the Dover Building.  Please take the time to visit with exhibitors.  Their support of Delaware Ag Week is vital to the success of this event!

 

We look forward to seeing you in Harrington!

Sincerely,

Cory Whaley
