8 Jun 2010

Invitation to NABREW 2010 - the premiere venue for blueberry research and extension

Come to beautiful west Michigan this summer to hear the latest advances in blueberry breeding, blueberry production, and blueberry crop protection. A two day program full of talks and posters is planned  in downtown Kalamazoo. There is something for everyone, including sessions on the state-of-the-science of organic blueberry production and blueberry genomics, with talks by the leaders in these fields.

The conference presentations will open on Monday with a keynote talk by Dr. Mike Mainland of NCSU on the History of the North American Blueberry Industry. We will have a conference dinner on Tuesday at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo (complete with free flight simulator rides!), and the industry tour on Wednesday will include demonstrations of new harvesters and modern fruit packing lines. The tentative program is available on line. West Michigan is also a wonderful place for a family vacation, so stay awhile and enjoy the beaches, lakes, museums, zoos, and summer activities on offer in this region.

The oral sessions are full, but we are accepting late-breaking posters until June 15. Abstracts can be submitted at

If you have not already registered, please do! Reduced-rate registration is open until June 15 at Here you can register for the scientific session as well as the Wednesday tour of the industry.
