Area Grower Outreach Meetings and Listening Sessions
The California Avocado Commission (CAC) is embarking on a new path regarding production research and grower outreach. Over the past year, the CAC Board and Production Research Committee have discussed the need to better communicate the results of CAC-funded and other research with growers and play a more active role in helping growers increase production of premium quality avocados.
In addition, CAC is taking a new look at production research, emphasizing funding projects that are driven by growers’ needs and focused on practical outcomes with the goal of improving production.
To begin this process, Tim Spann, CAC’s research program director, will be coordinating several small, local grower meetings to hear from you what your questions and needs are as they relate to production, and to begin extending information to help you improve your production practices. If you are interested in participating in these meetings, please complete the form below. Initial meetings will take place in April with additional meetings organized on an ongoing basis as groups of growers are identified in a given area.
