    For more than 35 years, vegetable growers from Southern Indiana and Northern Kentucky have been coming to Starlight to learn more about modern production of fresh vegetables. Commercial vegetable producers, like any other farmer, face many production and marketing challenges in bringing the world’s highest quality products to the consumer’s kitchen table. Weeds, diseases, insects, and weather uncertainties can all add up to impact the complexity of producing a safe, nutritious, and economical food supply. It can certainly be a challenge for a vegetable grower to keep up-to-date regarding the latest varieties and tools available, along with the occasional regulatory change that they need to comply with.
    Growers (including home gardeners) wishing to spend a few hours learning about the latest information in the field of vegetable crop production are encouraged to attend the annual Starlight Vegetable Growers Meeting on Tuesday, February 23, 2010. This annual educational program will begin with registration from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. There will be an opportunity for participants to visit with commercial exhibitors throughout the evening to keep in touch with the latest pest control options, vegetable varieties, tools, and marketing/packaging products.
