Index Fresh Invites Growers to its 22nd Seminar Series
RIVERSIDE, CA - Index Fresh is inviting the industry to come one, come all to its 22nd Seminar Series this month in San Luis Obispo (10/17), Ventura (10/23), and Fallbrook (10/31), California. The global avocado marketer has been hosting its seminar series since 2011 as part of its commitment to support growers and grower organizations.
“Our seminars have always had great reception in all three growing regions. We’re grateful to be connected to leading experts in our industry to host an annual series that is truly beneficial to our growers,” said Keith Blanchard, California Field Manager.
Gerardo Aldunate, an agronomist and fruit production consultant, will present the seminar, “Fall Management Practices to Improve Spring Flower.” During this Seminar Series, the ag expert will outline tasks that growers should address and implement during the fall to optimize next year’s fruit set and crop size, according to a press release.
“One of the critical time frames in avocado farming occurs during the spring bloom, but if you wait until then to prepare your trees, you’re too late. You can make a big difference in the outcome of next year’s crop if you anticipate and know what’s within your control, and address those needs now,” said Aldunate.
Aldunate works closely with growers in California and around the world. He serves as Index Fresh’s Consulting Agronomist, in which he regularly visits the company’s growers and groves, assists with grove management and fruit production practices, and helps Index Fresh fulfill its grower commitment.
