Vegetable association president Mark Henry, president of Eden, N.Y.-based W.D. Henry & Sons Inc., which markets its vegetables through Eden Valley Growers, said the show has become a major attraction for leading state associations that have joined in recent years.
“Syracuse is a general feeding point for the Northeast,” he said.
“We can draw on a wide range of university and professional people that are well-versed in a lot of the issues that face those of us in the Northeast and the whole country, from labor to insect and disease management and varieties. The show brings a wide range of representatives from the industry, from seed providers to packaging. It offers one-stop shopping for a wide variety of groups.”
The show normally attracts up to 1,400 participants.
