Starting January 2021, the Almond Board of California (ABC) will provide a new opportunity for growers, PCAs and CCAs to gain timely operational insights that support in-orchard practices and help them meet seasonal challenges head on.

ABC’s Training Tuesdays will kick off on January 5 and continue 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 a current practice, or run past their local 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 ABC’s Chief Scientific Officer Josette Lewis, Ph.D.

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 CCA or DPR credits.

The first training will be held on January 5 and the topic is “Best Management Practices for Pesticide Use During Almond Bloom.” Visit
