San Bernardino County ACP/HLB Workshops This Month

Inland Empire/Desert

As Huanglongbing continues to spread in Southern California, citrus growers and homeowners with multiple backyard citrus trees in San Bernardino County are invited to attend free, upcoming workshops on Saturday, July 20 (Redlands) and Saturday, July 27 (Yucaipa) that will address best practices for managing the Asian citrus psyllid in commercial and urban settings.

At the workshops, attendees will learn the current status of the pest and disease in San Bernardino, what to look for, quarantine information and maps and best practices. Local commercial growers can get more information about area-wide treatments and more. This free event will be presented by your local ACP-HLB grower liaison and the UCCE Master Gardeners.

For questions, contact Sandra Zwaal, Ventura and San Bernardino County ACP-HLB Grower Liaison at szwaal2@gmail.com or 949-636-7089. Register for either location below.
