Fruit Grower Meeting brings Jeff Colombini, 2013 Grower of the Year, and UC experts, to Apple Hill

Sutter Hill, CA...Lynn Wunderlich, local U.C. Cooperative Extension Farm Advisor for El Dorado, Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties, invites foothill fruit growers to a “Tree Fruit Meeting” to be held on Tuesday, February 9, 8:15 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. The meeting will take place in the Institute of Forest Genetics’ conference room at 2480 Carson Road in Placerville. There is a registration fee of $5 per person. Invited speakers include Jeff Colombini of Lodi Farming Inc. who was recently honored by “Good Fruit Grower” magazine as 2013 “Grower of the Year.” Jeff grows about 500 acres of apples and 300 acres of cherries in the northern San Joaquin Valley and will discuss growing techniques Lodi Farming uses to produce premium apples. Other featured speakers include Katherine Pope, UC Cooperative Extension Farm Advisor in Sacramento-Solano-Yolo Counties, who will help growers understand how to count tree fruit chilling hours. UC Davis Professor and pomology expert Ted DeJong will give an overview of “how fruit trees work.” El Dorado County Agricultural Commissioner will present an update on laws and regulations affecting farmers. Local Farm Advisor Lynn Wunderlich will provide an update on weather patterns and tree fruit disease management...






For an additional treat, attending growers will learn the benefits of incorporating biodiversity on the farm, including pollination, pest control, water quality, and food safety, from speaker Jo Ann Baumgartner of the Wild Farm Alliance.

Pre-register by February 5th. To register online go to http://ucanr.edu/uccecs-treefruitmtg or in person at the Bethell-Delfino Agriculture Building, 311 Fair Lane, Placerville. You may also RSVP to Robin Cleveland at 530-621-5528 to register at the door. For more information, directions, or if you should need assistance, please contact Robin Cleveland at the University of California Cooperative Extension office.
