Almond growers are invited to a symposium tomorrow at the Kerman Community Center in Fresno County. They’ll hear experts talk on a number of subjects, including what they should do now – about Navel Orangworm. And Dr. Gurreet Brar with the UC Cooperative Extension says it’s important to stay on top of the problem this year.

He said the early heat will make control even more difficult this year, and growers should be spraying during these few weeks to control bigger infestations later in the season.
