Research Poster Display

NEW FOR 2021! Virtual Poster Display

Looking for different ways to highlight your research in horticulture in 2021? We are pleased to announce that the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention (OFVC) will be hosting a Virtual Poster Session for 2021.

The goal of the Poster Session is to highlight research on fruit, vegetables and alternative crops in Ontario. Posters will be available for viewing on this page starting February 17, 2021, allowing growers and members of the ag-industry to see the excellent work being done in support of the many commodities they grow.

The 2021 Educational Series - Poster Session is an effective venue for researchers, industry and extension specialists to present new information pertinent to Ontario’s horticultural industry. Posters that present results from research trials, including pest management, crop production, new cultivars, and opportunities for marketing Ontario horticulture are welcomed.

What are we looking for in 2021? Since posters will be available online, formats need to be friendly for viewing online. The use of infographics or other visual messaging tools, where appropriate, is encouraged. Posters must be supplied as a PDF file at the highest resolution possible. Please use a landscape format, as these are generally easier to read online. The complete poster is limited to one slide/page only. As our audience is predominantly comprised of growers and consultants, avoid technical language or jargon.

Interested in adding an audio clip to your poster? Please contact us for more information.

Both student and regular submissions are welcome in this category.

To submit a poster in the Regular Poster Session, contact the poster session chair prior to January 31, 2021.
