Since 2009, more than 1,000 California Almond growers have participated in the California Almond Sustainability Program (CASP) by attending a grower workshop. At these workshops, hosted throughout the Central Valley, growers come to learn about CASP and voluntarily fill out some self-assessments before eating lunch and getting back out to the ranch.
This year, the Almond Board is working hard to secure speakers for each of its hosted workshops throughout the Valley to discuss topics relevant to growers today. Topics may include irrigation management during drought, sprayer efficacy and calibration, NOW control, distribution uniformity and others. Be sure to mark your calendars for Almond Board-hosted workshops coming to your area. Also, keep an eye out for even more workshops hosted by allied industry partners throughout the spring. Definite dates and locations are as follows:
- March 5 — Fresno
- March 25 — Chico
- April 15 — Merced
- May 20 — Bakersfield
- June 5 — Visalia
- July 15 — Williams
