AgNet Media celebrated a terrific conclusion to this year’s Citrus and Specialty Crop Expo event held in Tampa, Florida.

The annual two-day event concluded on Thursday with another morning devoted to seminar sessions; one each for citrus and specialty crop growers. The tradeshow was also a featured part of the day as attendees greeted exhibitors and mingled with industry leaders.

As always the two-day event could not done without the help of sponsors who continue to support AgNet Media and its desire to help producers in the Southeast remain sustainable now and into the future.

Josh McGill, show director for AgNet Media, thanked those businesses and industry leaders who helped make this year’s event one of the best ever.

“We really appreciate our sponsors. It wouldn’t be possible to put on this show without the sponsors and exhibitors, especially CRDF (Citrus Research and Development Foundation) has been a huge supporter with the seminar sessions and helping us to fund that, as well as Syngenta, TKI (Tessenderlo Kerley Inc.), Redox; we just appreciate all of our sponsors and the contributions that they make and keep this show alive and possible,” McGill said.

The dates and site have yet to be determined for next year’s show.
