Today is the second day of the five-day California Spring Trials. Everyone seems excited to welcome people to their location again and are doing their very best to show growers, distributors, and retailers the potential of their new, improved, and existing products and ideas. Besides being colorful and aesthetically appealing, many displays are also informative, showcasing the characteristics and benefits of a variety or series.
Below is an impression of what's on display, and on Monday, April 3, we will publish the full photo report.
