Lindcove REC was kept busy during the World Ag Expo, which is held annually in Tulare. This year's event took place from February 10-12 and was visited by more than 100,000 attendees.
Busloads of visitors came to LREC for fruit tastings, guided tours through the Demonstration Orchard, informative talks by Therese Kapaun about the research projects here at the Center and by Dr. Rock Christiano of the Citrus Clonal Protection Program about the clean citrus budwood program. One group toured the packline and listened to Donald Cleek explain the types of measurements the machine can record.
We were delighted to receive high school students from Utah, college students from Washington, a group on an Ag Expo tour to visit nearby ag-related industries, and citrus growers from Morocco and Mexico.
