UF IFAS Landscaping Summit – AG INFORMATION NETWORK OF THE WEST
UF IFAS landscape summit
With your Southeast Regional Ag Report, I’m Trevor Williams.
This week, the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida launched a landscape summit that will last for the next three months. The summit will cover a wide range of landscaping topics for both professionals and beginners. Michael Dukes is IFAS Director at the Center for Land Use Efficiency. Here is Michael on the information the summit wants to address:
“The Landscape Summit, which begins tomorrow (Thursday, Wednesday 20th), will be held every Wednesday from January 20th through March 31st at 1:00 pm EST. It’s scheduled for an hour and a half. Many of them have two speakers a specific one Landscape theme. Pest control, water conservation, water quality, landscaping, etc. Just a lot of topics that I think will shape and shape the future of landscapes, especially in Florida. The first session will be a panel on industry. “”
The transition from summits to virtual events is not the first rodeo for IFAS. You had already adapted personal workshops to the online summit format.
“Last spring, we had a BMP (Best Management Practices) summit that was planned personally in May. At some point in March it became clear that this was just not going to be feasible. We switched this pretty quickly to a virtual format to use in the To include essentially the same content that we had planned for the personal person. “
