The Almond Pest Management Alliance (PMA) is sponsoring a one-day almond pest management training event at two locations this fall.

The first will be at the UC Kearney Research and Extension Center in Parlier, Nov. 4, with the program moving to the UCCE San Joaquin County Office in Stockton on Nov. 5.

The program includes presentations of best practices for managing insects, mites and diseases in almond orchards. There will be 6.5 hours of CE credits available for pest control advisors, including 1.75 hours of Laws and Regulations. The registration fee for the course is $45.
