Almond Boron Rootstock Field Day

July 13 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Free

When: Tuesday, July 13th 8am-10am

Where: Southeast Corner of I-505 & County Road 19 (North of Madison, West of Woodland)

Thinking about developing a new almond orchard in a high boron setting? Picking the wrong rootstock when water or soil is high in boron (>1 ppm) can endanger tree health and orchard yields.

UC ANR, UC Davis and the Almond Board of California have been working for the last decade to evaluate the best options in high boron settings to sustain yields while making use of sub-optimal water and soil.

Come join UCCE Orchard Advisor Kat Jarvis-Shean & UC Davis Professor Patrick Brown to see with your own eyes nine different rootstock options and talk through the ten years of data we’ve gathered to evaluate their merits.

The event is free, but please register here to help our planning.

There are no CE credits associated with this event.
