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 4 hours of synchronous instruction, with supplemental video instruction, and question and answer sessions with our instructors.
