A Return to Spring for CAST By Ana Olvera

The 2022 edition of California Spring Trials is set to take place at the end of March.

The industry’s must-attend new variety event is returning to its normal timeframe this year — 2022 California Spring Trials (CAST) is once again scheduled to take place in the spring. The dates are March 30-April 3*.

This year, nine locations will be hosting more than 30 different companies throughout California as they roll out their latest introductions for the industry to see.

Following is a listing of this year’s locations and participants, as well as vital information about each trial location.

If you plan to attend the 2022 California Spring Trials this year, you need to make your reservations with each site individually at www.2022cast.com.

And stay tuned for the March issue of GPN where we will be providing a few sneak peeks of what the breeding companies are planning to introduce at CAST this year.
