What Are the UC Ag Experts Talking About?
|UC Ag Experts Talk: Citrus Dry Root Rot||7/24/2019|
|Understanding effective citrus spray application through computer simulations||8/21/2019|
What is involved in the webinars?
A series of 1 hour webinars, designed for growers and Pest Control Advisors, will highlight various pest management and horticultural topics for citrus and avocados. During each session, a UC Expert on the subject will make a presentation and entertain write-in questions via chat during and/or after the presentation. As we develop this program, we may expand to other crops.
Topics: pests and diseases of citrus, avocado and other crops
What are the topics and how do I register?
Citrus Dry Root Rot (July 24, 2019 from 3-4 pm)
Dr. Akif Eskalen, Plant Pathologist, UC Cooperative Extension Specialist, will discuss the symptoms, biology and management of citrus dry root rot. More information to come. One DPR CE unit (other) and one CCA CE unit (IPM) are pending.
Understanding effective citrus spray application through computer simulations (August 21, 2019 from 3 to 4 pm)
Sufficient spray deposition or coverage throughout target tree canopies is an ultimate goal of citrus pesticide application. Yet, how to achieve this goal is usually a challenge to growers or applicators under varying field conditions. Dr. Peter Ako Larbi, UCCE assistant specialist for the spray technology will explore this challenge and use computer simulated data to explain how different techniques may be used to optimize deposition for improved pest control. One DPR CE unit (other) and one CCA CE unit (IPM) are pending.
- California Red Scale (September 25, 2019)
- Avocado diseases II. (October)
- Use of Plant Growth Regulators in Avocado (December)

Are there Continuing Education units?
When the subject discusses pest or disease management, continuing education units will be requested from DPR (1 unit per session). Participants will pre-register, participate in the webinar and be awarded the unit. The sessions will be recorded and hosted on this web site for future study. However, continuing education units will be awarded only to the participants who attend the live version of the webinar.

This webinar series is brought to you by Ben Faber (UC ANR Ventura Advisor) and Dr. Beth Grafton-Cardwell (Depart of Entomology UC Riverside Extension Specialist) with the technical support of Petr Kosina (UC IPM Contect Development Supervisor) and Cheryl Reynolds (UC IPM Interactive Learning Developer).
