Watermelon Field Day Highlights 26 Varieties
Braving the heavy rain generated from Hurricane Patricia, earlier this month more than 25 growers from the Florida region attended the Bayer CropScience Vegetable Seeds’ watermelon field day event at 4-Star Tomato Fields in Myakka City, FL.
This first-time event showcased 26 varieties from the watermelon portfolio, while highlighting some of the strongest varieties for the Florida region. It was an opportunity for growers to view, taste and discuss with the products for the field and market.
“Field events are a unique and special opportunity to connect with our customers on a professional, as well as, a personal level. The relaxed environment of a field day is an ideal format to learn about our customers and how to connect our product to their needs,” said Beth Ruman, sales specialist for watermelon and melon.
