January 27-29, 2014 — Hershey Pennsylvania

in cooperation with the Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention

These online Proceedings include both articles and Powerpoint presentations, all as pdf files. Most speakers are represented, but not all. And, of course, missing are the oral presentation that accompanied Powerpoint presentations and informal discussion and questions that make up a large part of the conference experience. 

Files vary in size; large files may be slow to open for those with dial-up connections or slow download speeds. 

NARBA is now making Proceedings older than three years public access, however, presentations and articles remain the property of the presenters, and permission should be sought for some uses, such as republishing or showing a presentation.  A CD of these Proceedings is available free on request to NARBA members or others who attended the conference. It is available for $10 (postage included) to all others.
