I wanted to make people aware of the 2022 Great Plains Growers Conference (GPGC) for 2022. This is a great local conference for commercial fruit and vegetable producers from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and other midwest states providing research-based information, from both vegetable research specialists and local growers, to help your farms grow and thrive. This year will be a unique format. You can either participate in-person at Missouri Western University, St. Joseph, MO or virtually from your own home.
