Upcoming Oriental Fruit Fly Grower Meetings

Southern California

Due to additional detections of the Oriental Fruit Fly (OFF) and an expansion of the OFF quarantine in San Bernardino and Riverside counties – now covering 553 square miles – there will be two grower meetings held in the area next week.

Riverside County
The Riverside County Agricultural Commissioner’s Office will be holding a grower meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at the Woodcrest Library to discuss the OFF quarantine expansion in the area. In addition, growers will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear from USDA, CDFA and Riverside County staff. The county will also be assisting growers, shippers and packers with completing their compliance agreements for the movement of fruit within the quarantine area.

Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2023
10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Woodcrest Library
