Almond Industry Conference Offers Continuing Education Credits
“We work really hard to ensure that the content we're delivering, is specific for almond grower’s need, not just in what we're presenting, but making sure that we have plenty of continuing education credits,” said Nicolau. “So we have Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) and Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) credit. Also the Research Update book that everyone receives along with the opportunity to interact with Almond Board funded researchers is second to none,” she said.
In more news sanitizing tree nut orchards will prevent navel orange worm populations next year, noted Houston Wilson a UCR entomologist. The importance of sanitation is that it allows growers to remove the overwintering navel orange worm larvae from your orchard. And that serves as the basis for the population that you have in the following season,” Wilson said. “So out of the combination of cultural and chemical control strategies that we recommend, sanitation is one of the most important things you can do. And the sooner you can do it, the more thoroughly you can do it, the better.”
