By Patrick Cavanaugh, with the Ag Information Network

A UC Cooperative Extension Virtual Walnut Series is coming up on Feb. 16th and 17th.

Kari Arnold is a UC Cooperative Extension Area 0rchard and Vineyard Systems Farm Advisor in Stanislaus County. “It’s going to be Feb. 16th and 17th. It’s online as virtual because of COVID-19 we can’t be in person. It’s going to be 9am to Noon each day. If you’re interested in the link for the seminar email at klarnold@ucanr.edu,” Arnold said.

“It’s going to cover diseases. We’re going to talk about rootstocks, pests, varieties, just the whole gamut. We tried to cover a lot of ground in six hours between the two days. The second day will be pests and diseases. So, there will be DPR, CCA, and CURES nitrogen credits,“ noted Arnold.

The California Walnut Board and Commission is sponsoring the event. “They will be covering all the associated costs. It’s a big collaborative event between USDA, University of California Cooperative Extension, University of California, Davis, and Riverside, and just a whole bunch of us are getting together and talking about walnuts,” she said.

Again, for more information, email Kari Arnold at klarnold@ucanr.edu.
