Missouri Blueberry School Conference to be held in Springfield


University of Missouri Extension and Missouri State University announce the 2012 Missouri Blueberry School Conference, which will be held Oct. 19 and Oct. 20, at the MSU Bond Learning Center, 2401 S. Kansas Expressway Springfield, as well as at area blueberry sites.

The conference will include educational sessions for blueberry enthusiasts of all levels--experienced commercial growers, prospective growers, or those interested in learning about this fruit crop. Included in the conference is a tour to two area blueberry sites.

"Blueberries are a fruit crop with huge commercial potential, as well as an excellent fruit crop for home fruit production", said Patrick Byers, a horticulture specialist with University of Missouri Extension. "The blueberry industry is relatively young in Missouri. The first blueberries in southwest Missouri were planted in the 1970s."

The cost to attend the workshop is $50 for the educational sessions on Oct. 19, and $50 for the blueberry tour on Oct. 20. Advanced registration is requested. For more information on the conference or to register, call MU Extension at 417-881-8909.

University of Missouri Extension programs focus on the high-priority needs of Missourians. Each county extension center, with oversight by locally elected and appointed citizens, is your local link to practical education on almost anything.
