Evening Social and Fertilizer Trial/Demonstration

Join us for a cook out at the Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Balm and for a look at the trial UF/IFAS Extension ran with six different controlled-release fertilizers.  We planted liners to a three gallon pot a year ago and took data at eight months and a year.  Some of you may have seen the trial beginnings at our last woody production field day.  We looked at plant growth and chlorophyll levels to help you make better fertilizer decisions.  Grab a bite to eat, hang out and chat with fellow growers, and see how your fertilizer compares.
