New webinar posted

We want to thank all of you who participated on the CA NV SWCS Webinar on 7/14/21.  Sonia Rios’s presentation was full of technical knowledge regarding high density avocado planting and avocado production in general.   Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties we were not able to capture the entire presentation.  However, we were able to record the Q & A Session fully.  To watch this session, please go to the following link at our Youtube Channel.

As always, thank you for your support and make sure to watch for the next SWCS webinar invite for August.
