Approximately 2,200 attendees are expected to gather at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Pennsylvania for the convention.

According to the Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention website, the program covers nearly every aspect of fruit, vegetable, potato, strawberry, bramble, cut flower, greenhouse and wine grape production.

The day before the convention begins, growers can chose between a bus tour of York County farm markets or eight different workshops. The workshops include FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) Grower Training, Hands-On Apple Tree Grafting, Cider Symposium, Hops Production, Greenhouse Vegetable Production, Recall Readiness, Vegetable Grafting and Pennsylvania Pesticide Applicator License Training.
