2022 Principles of Fruit & Nut Tree Growth, Cropping & Management

March 7 - March 22, 2022
Zoom

REGISTRATION HERE

The 2022 Principles of Fruit & Nut Tree Growth, Cropping & Management will be held remotely. A Zoom link will be provided to registrants.

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.

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.

Registration is requested no later than March 1st, 2022.

Refunds will be granted in full if requested no later than March 1st, 2022. No refunds will be granted after March 1st, 2022.

More detailed information on schedule and a Zoom link will be sent to registered participants closer to the beginning of the course. 

Registration will be closed after March 1st, 2022.
