Webinar #1 | Evaluating ANR’s mission of research, extension and adoption through the lens of mating disruption in nut crops
Tuesday, October 26
11:30 AM-12:00 PM | Register here
David Haviland, UCCE Farm Advisory, Kern County
Topic: Mating disruption is a novel, low-risk pest management practice whereby orchards are blanketed by synthetically-produced pheromone in a way that confuses males, prevents mating, and reduces offspring. For the past decade, academics at ANR have been conducting research and demonstration trials that have led to MD adoption for navel orangeworm on more than 40 million nut trees statewide. This SI Spotlight Webinar will highlight the efforts of ANR scientists that made this success possible.
Who should attend? ANR employees with interest in a technology transfer success story, with a focus on the steps used by ANR academics to successfully influence grower behavior.
