These meetings are being held in orchards across the state. Growers have an opportunity to visit other commercial tree fruit operations, learn from Extension specialists who are experts in their program areas, and discuss current tree fruit issues with other growers at a critical time of the growing season.

The program highlights include:

  • Gearing Up to Manage Tree Fruit Diseases
  • Bio-renovation of Orchard Sites
  • Integrated Weed Management
  • Monitoring and Management for Insect and Mite Pests
  • Apple Thinning and Promoting Return Bloom

There is no registration fee for these programs.
