Botryosphaeria Disease in Walnuts, July 21, Woodland
A July 21 meeting on the Botryosphaeria fungal disease in walnuts will be held in Woodland, Calif. at the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE)-Yolo County office.
This 9 a.m. to noon event is in response to recent concerns over extensive die-back and infection seen in walnuts. Many of these cases have been confirmed as the fungal disease Botryosphaeria.
Symptoms indicate the disease is widespread in the Yolo-Solano county areas.
Themis Michailides, UCCE’s ‘Bot’ expert from the Kearney Agricultural Research & Extension Center, will provide an overview of the pathogen, show symptoms of the disease in walnut in different seasons of the year and stages of the disease’s lifecycle, and discuss current treatment options and ongoing UC research in disease treatments.
The UCCE-Yolo office is located in Norton Hall, 70 Cottonwood St. in Woodland.
This is a last-minute meeting so no CE credits are available. Attendees can bring their own refreshments.
