Starting January 2021, the Almond Board of California will provide a new opportunity for growers, pest control advisors and certified crop advisors to gain timely operational insights that support in-orchard practices and help them meet seasonal challenges head on, as announced in a new release.
The Almond Board of California’s (ABC’s) Training Tuesdays kicked off Jan. 5 and continues throughout the crop year. During the trainings, ABC staff and industry experts will present the latest on industry-funded research, new programs available to assist growers, tools within the California Almond Sustainability Program and more.
Attendees will walk away from each training with tangible, practical tips they can try in the orchard, use to improve current practices, or share with their farm advisor for more information and site-specific recommendations. Training attendees will also have an opportunity to ask the experts questions specific to their operation, and all trainings will be posted to the Almond Board of California’s YouTube channel for easy reference about a week after they are hosted.
“With the first-ever virtual Almond Conference this year in addition to COVID-19 restrictions on in-person gatherings, we are implementing Training Tuesdays to provide growers and industry professionals with timely, practical information to ultimately increase their productivity and profitability,” said Josette Lewis, ABC’s chief scientific officer.
The trainings will be held on the first and third Tuesdays of every month and begin at 8 a.m. PT, lasting 1-1.5 hours. CEUs will also be offered for webinars eligible for Certified Crop Advisors or California DPR credits.
