Fall Field Day Recap

Fall Field Day

It was a Hot One! It may have felt more like summer but the Annual Fall Field Day was still a hit. The 180 participants heard from 4 great speakers, experienced first-hand how to handle chemical spills with live interactive demonstrations, and as always, had a great lunch. The speakers added a little drama and humor to their presentations so it was never boring.

A big thanks to MNI Direct for sponsoring the event tee-shirts – the first 100 to register get an official Fall Field Day tee. Another benefit of attending this rewarding event.

Thanks to our instructors: Lt. Lee Catoe  Clemson Extension Service, John Hayes – South Carolina Aquatics, Tammy Lognion- Department of Pesticide Regulation, and Steve Compton – Department of Plant Industry. The exhibitors offered opportunities to learn about equipment, new plant material, irrigation, and more.

Mark your calendar the 2018 Fall Field Day is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26.
