Upcoming CAS Seminar to Focus on Gibberellic Acid and New Avocado Varieties
The California Avocado Society is hosting a free webinar on February 17 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. concerning two topics: the plant growth regulator gibberellic acid and new avocado varieties.
Dr. Tim Spann will focus on the efficacy of gibberellic acid on improved fruit set (ProGibb LV Plus). He will share trial data results that were compiled over the course of several years and used successfully to receive a registration on ProGibb LV Plus for use on avocados in 2018. In addition, he will review the basics of how and when to apply ProGibb for best results in avocados. Finally, he will discuss the results of a grower survey conducted in 2020 summarizing growers' experience with ProGibb on California avocados.
Dr. Mary Lu Arpaia will discuss the latest developments concerning new avocado varieties.
