Each year, OFVC is proud to host the research poster display located just inside the main entrance to the trade show.
The goal of this display is to highlight research on fruit, vegetables and alternative crops in Ontario. Posters are displayed for both days of the convention, allowing growers and members of the ag-industry to see the excellent work being done in support of the many commodities they grow.
The OFVC Poster Session is an effective venue for researchers, industry and extension specialists to present new information pertinent to Ontario's horticultural industry. Posters that present results from research trials, including pest management, crop production, new cultivars, and opportunities for marketing Ontario horticulture are welcomed. Keep in mind that the audience is predominantly comprised of growers and consultants. Avoid technical language or jargon so that everyone can make the most of the information. Both student and regular submissions are welcome in this category. Posters should approximately be 120cm x 90cm (48" x 36") in either portrait or landscape orientation. Please do not bring oversized posters.
The long-standing Student Poster Competition features student research conducted in the field of horticulture. The event offers students an opportunity to showcase their work to their target audience, compete for cash awards and to publish their posters online. In 2019 the competition will be limited to the first 20 applications so please get your forms in early. In addition to free conference admission, prizes are as follows:
1st Prize – $500
