Combined NJ agriculture shows opening in Atlantic City

The New Jersey Department of Agriculture reminds us that two of the state's most influential annual gatherings of growers are joining forces for the first time this week to showcase the Garden State’s agrarian advances.

The New Jersey Department of Agriculture and the Vegetable Growers Association of New Jersey have merged their respective annual meetings into one combined convention/trade show.

he combined State Agricultural Convention will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, January 18 and 19, at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.

Following a season marked by extreme weather that caused crop damage and farm property loss, the event will feature an interactive listening session January 19 on Crop Insurance and Risk Management, led by United State Department of Agriculture Under Secretary Michael Scuse.

Other sessions during the two-day convention include: succession planning, marketing with social media and Farmland Protection/Right to Farm. These open public forums will give those in the agriculture industry the opportunity to share their experiences on the ground, make suggestions, and gain valuable new information. 

Delegates also will discuss issues affecting the industry, help set agricultural policy for the coming year and determine the new members of the State Board of Agriculture.
