Online Nuts and Tree Fruit Education Program

Since 2012, the goal of the UC Davis Fruit and Nut Research and Information Center (FNRIC) has been to improve information delivery to California growers by making historical educational materials from UC Davis and UC Cooperative Extension accessible on the FNRIC peer-reviewed website and to develop online educational training. These online courses are exclusively designed for new fruit and nut tree farmers or current farmers that are transitioning their land to fruit and nut trees. If you have any questions please contact us.
