Large State Agriculture Convention Comes to Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- A premier agriculture conference wraps up in Yakima Sunday. 

The Tilth Producers annual conference took over the Yakima Convention Center this weekend. Over 400 agriculture producers attended. This year's theme was "Nourishing the Future" and farmers of every generation learned new ways to grow their crop. Organizers say this conference brings all types of farmers together to share ideas.

"I want farmers to go home and have gained new knowledge, whether it be from research, business skills, in whatever way, that's going to help them make their farm more successful and more profitable next season," Michele Catalano of Tilth Producers said.

The conference included 30 different workshops, Spanish language sessions, farm tours and organic wine tasting.
