(AgNet Media, Inc., Gainesville, November 14, 2017) — Over the past year, vegetable and specialty crop growers in the Southeast have come to rely on the VSCNews website and weekly e-newsletter for the news and research updates they need. Soon, growers in Florida, Georgia and Alabama will have another source for this valuable information.
Due to the popularity of the VSCNews website and e-newsletter, and the demand for more information in this niche market, VSCNews is expanding to a printed publication. In January 2018, the first printed issue of VSCNews will appear inside Citrus Industry magazine. The magazine is the perfect home for VSCNews because citrus diseases and market challenges are causing citrus growers to seek information on alternative crops.
VSCNews fills the gap that exists in published research information for growers in the southeastern region. Not only does VSCNews provide the latest research on pests, disease and production techniques, it also keeps growers informed on the issues that impact their businesses, including labor, trade, regulations and more.
“The need that Vegetable and Specialty Crop News addresses is huge,” says Jack Payne, University of Florida’s senior vice president of agriculture and natural resources. “Farmers need more than good weather, good soil, and good prices to prosper. They need good information. I expect Vegetable and Specialty Crop News will quickly become must reading for everyone in the industry.”
Vegetable and specialty crops will continue to expand and diversify in the deep southeast region, and VSCNews will be there to communicate to growers — both newcomers and seasoned veterans — the information they need and want to know.
