Logistics & Economics of Alternative Harvesting Methods – Almond Board Training
February 16 @ 8:00 AM - 9:30 AMFree
The California almond industry is seeking alternative harvesting techniques to further reduce dust during harvest. This effort will involve some changes in handling logistics and mechanical drying. Studies, thus far, have demonstrated that mechanical drying of fresh, in-hull almonds – harvested via off-ground practices – provides a value proposition for almond growers and shows no negative impact on kernel quality. During this training, researchers will discuss the latest findings from their studies, after which attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session.
