Sugarcane Field Day – Nov. 3

Posted by romeethredge on October 29, 2014

The Sugarcane Field Day is for anyone interested in learning about and obtaining different varieties of sugarcane for growing on their farm or garden.  The event is held at the North Florida Research and Education Center (NFREC), in Quincy where a nursery of chewing, syrup, and crystal sugar varieties are kept. It will be held on Nov.3.  At the end of the presentations on sugarcane agronomics, registered attendees will be allowed to harvest up to 15 stalks of each variety from the cane nursery, so be sure to bring your own tools to cut stalks and carry them home.
