Managing Stone Fruit Bacterial Disease Problems [Webinar]
Due to the current COVID 19 situation, Extension Educators throughout New England have joined forces in a collaborative effort to develop a winter series of online educational programming focused on commercial fruit production. We have not planned in-person meetings for the near future, however, we hope growers will find some benefits to having access to the broad schedule of topics and speakers available through the New England Winter Fruit Seminar Series. The schedule is still being finalized, so please continue to visit https://ag.umass.edu/fruit/news-events/new-england-winter-fruit-seminar-series for the latest schedule updates.
Important: In order to receive pesticide safety recertification credits, participants are required to pre-register for each of these free seminars prior to the event. Pesticide Safety Recertification Credits: 2
