March 13 - March 17, 2023

UC Davis Activities and Recreation Center Ballroom A, Davis, CA


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 lecture, lab exercises, and demonstrations to provide information on all aspects of basic plant biology and the relationship between plant biology and nuts and fruit orchard management.

Our course includes five days of instruction. Each day will have several hours of classroom instruction, with some hands-on field instruction where appropriate.

An optional four day field trip will be held the following week (March 20-March 23, 2023) for an additional fee. This field trip will provide a look at fruit and nut breeding, growing, and processing facilities throughout the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys.
