This year, the Almond Board of California (ABC) is providing 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: introducing, Training Tuesdays.
During these virtual 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. Each training will also allow time for industry members to ask the experts questions specific to their operation.
CEUs will be offered for trainings eligible for DPR and CCA credits.
“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.
These trainings will be held on the first and third Tuesdays of every month and begin at 8 a.m. PST, lasting 1 to 1.5 hours. Video recordings of all trainings will be posted to the Almond Board’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/c/Almonds/playlists) roughly a week after they are held.
