Understanding the fundamentals of tree biology is essential in making sound orchard management and business decisions in the tree fruit and nut industry. However, access to educational courses on basic fruit and nut tree biology, and how it relates to agronomic practices, is limited. Our course incorporates lecture, lab exercises, and field demonstrations to provide information on all aspects of basic plant biology and the relationship between plant biology and nuts and fruit orchard management.
The course runs March 7-11, 2022.
Topics include tree growth, development and pruning, dormancy, chilling and rest breaking, flowering, pollination and fruit set, fruit development and thinning, tree water relations and irrigation, plant nutrition & fertilization, root growth and rootstocks, tree fruit pests and pathogens, and harvesting.
Our course includes five days of instruction. Each day will have 4 hours of synchronous instruction, with supplemental asynchronous video instruction, and question and answer sessions with our instructors.
Due to the virtual setting, the full course is being offered for $995.
