NOA/ NARC convention at Bland Farms
The 2016 winter event represents only the second time NOA/NARC have combined their events, so the researcher-to-stakeholder (producer) interaction and vice versa alone is compelling.
Attendees had the opportunity to tour Bland Farms and watch their optical grading and automated packing line. Which they did, in great numbers!
This format combining the NOA and NARC conventions and conferences is a tremendous opportunity for the onion industry.
For those who were not there, in total there were 320 people, brought by 7 touringcars!
