Cornell is organizing a tour of several of the main stops along the Spring Trial route in California from April 13-17, 2018. This one-of-a-kind guided excursion is an intense, educational, and very entertaining way for growers and horticultural professionals to visit several of the key Spring Trial locations with fellow horticulturists. It allows attendees the convenience of not having to arrange for their own stops, hotels, and transportation. The itinerary is jam-packed with three full days of tours with the days beginning early and continuing at a fast pace late into the evening. The cost includes 4 nights of hotel accommodations, bus transportation, lunches, and shuttle service from the airports on the first day.

Guests will be able to visit the major horticultural companies that distribute plant materials and supplies and get a first-hand look at the products and new varieties that are available to the floriculture industry. This excursion is designed specifically for members of the greenhouse, nursery, and landscape industries, other horticulture professionals, and academics. It is an opportunity to meet fellow growers, breeders, and other plant company representatives to see the latest new plant introductions, share ideas, update your understanding of what's happening in our industry, and travel with trained professionals.

Attendees should plan to arrive at the San Jose Airport on Friday, April 13, and will stay at the Spring Hill Suites by Marriott at the San Jose Airport (complimentary airport shuttle and breakfast included). The journey begins on Saturday morning, April 14, when the bus departs from the hotel. That first day, the group will tentatively visit Proven Winners, Syngenta Flowers, and Danziger Headstart Nursery. Participants will stay in the Courtyard by Marriott Salinas on Saturday night.
