Please join us for our 4th season of North American Virtual Orchard Meetups:

WATER WISDOM: NAVIGATING TREE FRUIT PRODUCTION THROUGH DROUGHT AND DELUGE

THURSDAYS FROM JUNE 6 – JUNE 27

7:00pm EST

Over the past decade, growers have experienced unpredictable rainfall, water availability challenges, droughts and deluge. We want to explore methods for adapting to these challenges and discuss alternatives for efficient irrigation practices, including advances in irrigation technologies that help growers produce high quality fruit.

In addition to the primary speakers, viewers are invited to share solutions, ask questions and interact with the specialists and grower panelists.

The schedule of topics is as follows:

  • JUNE 6 – Trends in Water Availability
  • JUNE 13 – Role of Water in Tree Fruit Physiology & Quality
  • JUNE 20 – Smart Watering: Practices for Irrigation Management
  • JUNE 27 – Water Wisdom Unplugged: Panelist Q&A

While each meeting builds off the one preceding it – and we hope you can attend all three – they also function as “stand-alone” meetings should you be unable to attend them all. You can download and import the following iCalendar (.ics) files to your calendar system.

Pre-registration is not required to attend. Simply go to simply go to the Meet-Up Zoom Site. If you can’t access, copy and paste the URL in your browser: https://bit.ly/2024-virtual-meetup
