Almond Update – 12-3-15

This year’s Almond Conference will offer more content than ever with the implementation of five separate tracks that will run simultaneously. And, one of these tracks is dedicated entirely to production and environmental research updates.

For more than 40 years, the Almond Board of California’s research programs have advanced yields, quality and environmental stewardship, contributing to the growth and success of the industry. Almond Board-funded researchers have helped to identify areas of opportunity and success through all parts of the growing life cycle. Be sure to attend these six-minute updates by researchers, offering insight into ongoing research projects. Researchers will also be available at poster sessions in Hall A+B, giving conference attendees a chance to ask follow-up questions.

For a chance to meet one-on-one with researchers and dive further into their updates, visit Halls A and B on Wednesday, December 9 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.

Featured research topics will include:
• Horticulture, Replant, Variety and Rootstock Evaluations and Breeding

• Water and Air Quality
• Pollination and Honey Bee Health

Additionally, you can meet with researchers on Thursday, December 10 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.
