The Washington Small Fruit Conference will be held Dec. 1-3.

The event will move into the Farm Pavilion and Expo buildings at the NW Washington Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds are located at 1775 Front St., Lynden, WA 98264.

The event will offer in-person and virtual event access, just make sure to make your selection during the registration process. Because of travel restrictions, some speakers will be presenting remotely.

The event has been shortened to just two days to accommodate the transition to the new space.

  • Spotted Winged Drosophila Management

  • New and Emerging Pests
  • Soilborne Disease Management
  • Soil and Fertility Management

…and more!

Approval has been received for nine Washington state pesticide credits this year, but not all sessions will receive some.
