Why should you attend?


Fruit & Vegetable presents the latest in soil and water-related research, actionable insights and best management practices for commercial fruit and vegetable growers.

We’ll highlight top-of-mind topics in soil and water from industry-leading experts and promote discussion among growers to advance the industry while improving your bottom line.


Soil and water are the great equalizers in agriculture but managing them is not a one-size-fits all process. With rising input costs and continuing supply chain issues, knowing how best to work with the tools you already have and how best to supplement them is key.

The Canadian Fruit & Vegetable Summit will bring together researchers, extension specialists and growers for an educational summit on key topics in soil and water. Expert presentations and panel discussions will cover actionable insights, leading research and best management practices to take home and use on-farm.


With more than 75 years as a leading magazine, Fruit & Vegetable is proud to present its first in-person summit in St. Catharines, Ont., dedicated to commercial fruit and vegetable producers in Canada.

If you are a commercial producer or researcher/student in this sector – don’t miss out!
