Understanding the fundamentals of tree biology is essential to making sound orchard management and business decisions in the tree fruit and nut industry. However, access to educational courses on basic fruit and nut tree biology and how it relates to agronomic practices is limited. Our course incorporates lectures and field demonstrations to provide information on all aspects of basic plant biology and the relationship between plant biology and nuts and fruit orchard management.
Course lectures will be held in the UC Davis Activities and Recreation Center and field demonstration will take place in the UC Davis Teaching Orchards. An optional four-day field trip will be held March 20- March 23, 2023 for an additional fee. This field trip will provide a view of fruit and nut breeding, growing, and processing facilities throughout the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys.
Registration is now open.
