Visit to Las Peñas, Nayarit.

This Fall we went down south and were in Mexico at Las Peñas, Nayarit and Tapachula, Chiapas on our annual service visit. BeltWide’s Carolina Gold has been the media of choice for many years. Tobacco growers are highly motivated and pleased with Beltwide’s plastic ‘float’ tray. Third year and the change is happening!! Looking ahead and moving forward to the total replacement of the EPS trays very soon. Great group effort and accomplishment.

This time at the Oxford, the Upper Coastal Plain and the Lower Coastal Plain Research Stations and hosted by the Extension and Research Faculty in Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Crop and Soil Sciences, and Entomology and Plant Pathology.
A very good turnout and time to get updated on programs that cover all areas of agronomic production and management of flue-cured and burley tobacco transplant production. 
And for 15 years in a row BeltWide Incorporated sponsored the first breakfast that everyone seems to enjoy.
