trial locations, resulting in more meaningful trial data.
Over the course of four days, industry experts with first hand perspectives will cover a range of plant trialing topics touching on trial gardens, data collection, edibles breeding, quality issues, trials in Asia, trial impacts on plant marketing, and more.
