University of GeorgiaIt can be mind-boggling trying to keep up with all the new production practices, products and plants in nursery, greenhouse and landscape businesses. Fortunately, there's always the Georgia-Florida Green Industry Updates.
The 2005 updates for nursery, greenhouse and landscape professionals will be Oct. 11 in Cairo, Ga., Oct. 18 in Jacksonville, Fla., and Oct. 19 in Quincy, Fla. These programs will provide the latest information on a range of important topics.
The programs are provided by the University of Georgia and University of Florida state and county faculties. The Cairo program will focus on nursery and greenhouse topics. The Jacksonville and Quincy programs are geared for professional landscape managers and workers. Each program will offer pesticide recertification credits.
The $40 fee for each program ($45 after Oct. 1) covers the instruction, handouts, refreshment breaks and lunch. You can get a registration form or sign up on-line at www.ugatiftonconferenc e.org.
