Train-the-Trainer Workshop: Sept. 27

San Joaquin Valley

A free, hands-on training workshop for local packinghouses, their crews and farm labor contractors about best practices to prevent Huanglongbing (HLB) from threatening the California citrus industry’s livelihood and infecting commercial groves will take place on Sept. 27 from 1 – 3 p.m. at the Tulare County Farm Bureau.

Presented in Spanish, this training informs front-line leaders in the field about what they can do to reduce the risk of spreading the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) and HLB, the fatal plant disease the psyllid carries as it feeds on citrus tree leaves. A complimentary meal will be provided for attendees.

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Understand the threat of HLB to the livelihood of the California citrus industry.
  • Become familiar with best practices for field crews to prevent ACP from spreading.
  • Practice using effective communication techniques to help their crews and others understand these best practices and why they are important.
