Field Day to Focus on Identifying and Managing Stressed Avocado Trees
The California Avocado Commission (CAC) will host a Pine Tree Ranch Field Day entitled, "Managing and Recovering from Plant Stress." Dr. Ben Faber, University of California Cooperative Extension, will lead attendees on a grove walk, looking for subtle — and not so subtle — indicators of stress on avocado trees. He’ll discuss grove management principles for managing stress in your groves.
In addition, Dr. Holly Little, Director of Global Commercial Science for Acadian Seaplants, Ltd., and Dr. Danny Klittich, Agronomist with Redox, will present research on managing and helping trees recover from stress events. Acadian Seaplants is the world leader in seaweed-based plant biostimulants. Through their product development program, they have amassed huge datasets from world-wide research on plant stress. Redox is a chemistry company focused on root development, plant stress, yield, salinity management, soil moisture management and crop quality. They believe that managing plant health and mitigating stress allows the plant to perform optimally.
The seminar will take place Wednesday September 19, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at Pine Tree Ranch, located at 19455 E. Telegraph Rd., Santa Paula, CA 93060.
