Western Pecan Growers Association Webinar Series

March 8 @ 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Due to the continued pandemic, the in-person annual meeting of the Western Pecan Growers Association is being replaced with a four-part webinar series. The first webinar will be on March 8th, and more will follow into the summer and fall. All the webinars will have a pest management component so that growers and pest control advisors can earn continuing education units depending on the state that you are in. Be sure to maintain your membership with the organization to view the series.  See the agenda below for the first webinar of the series.
