The Statewide Master Gardener Program has once again partnered with the California Center for Urban Horticulture, this time to bring you Advanced Citrus and Avocado training! The Your Sustainable Backyard: Citrus and Avocoado Series will be hosted in three locations in the upcoming weeks and will explore citrus and avocado varieties for the home garden, maintenance and upkeep, and special information on the pests that wreak havoc on citrus and avocados.
Special focus will be given to invasive pest Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP) and the effects of Citrus Greening Disease. We'll discuss identification, monitoring, and treatment of this threat to the California Citrus industry and to home citrus. Find out what all the fuss is about and educate yourselves to better serve the clientele in your region.
