Dr. Ben Faber will discuss plant growth regulators (PGRs), a powerful tool available for increasing fruit size and yield in an existing avocado orchard. Gibberellic acid (GA3) was registered for use on California avocados in March 2018 to improve fruit productivity. The handling, timing and application rate are critical and the reasons will be included in this discussion. Approval of one hour of DPR continuing education unit is pending.
