Northeast Specialty Crop Water Symposium Invites Poster and Session Submissions

The Northeast Specialty Crop Water Symposium, hosted by the University of Vermont and the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, is inviting proposals for panel sessions, 15-minute presentations, and graduate student posters. Submissions are due by October 15, 2019. The Symposium is set for December 18-19, 2019, in Burlington, Vermont. The symposium has three overarching goals: Increase shared understanding and knowledge about how climate change will affect irrigated/rain fed specialty crops in the Northeast, and how water use efficiency practices can be improved; create opportunities for researchers, Extension, and technical service providers working in different specialty crop sectors to learn from one another; and create opportunities for participants in the Northeast to learn from practitioners from other parts of the country.
