A: Market Trends: Asking the tough questions | Presented by California Citrus Mutual
Join CCM President and CEO Casey Creamer as he speaks with industry leaders about market conditions, trends and gets their outlook on the 2020-21 season and beyond.
B: California’s collaborative and multi-layer approach to ward off the threat of Huanglongbing (HLB) | Presented by Citrus Research Board
In this presentation, Georgios Vidalakis, Ph.D., will discuss the preventive, concurrent and multi-layered anti-HLB approaches developed and implemented through collaborative efforts of the industry, scientists and governmental agencies that has kept HLB out of commercial citrus. We also will focus on new varieties being processed by the Citrus Clonal Protection Program (CCPP) and plans for their release and evaluation under California growing conditions. The solution to HLB will not be a single silver bullet. It will be based on a systems approach, and all of us will play a critical role in its success.
C: Hot Topics in Labor Law and Regulation | Presented by California Citrus Mutual
Expert panelists will provide an update on hot topics in labor law and regulation including wage and hour requirements, health and safety standards, H2A, and impending state and federal legislation. Panelists include Mike Saqui of the Saqui Law Group, David Scaroni and Steve Scaroni of Fresh Harvest, and Rudy Mendoza, President of the California Agriculture Labor Association.
