CCQC to Host Grower Meetings on Ethyl Formate Use for ACP

The California Citrus Quality Council (CCQC) is inviting the industry to attend an open meeting to discuss options for the use of ethyl formate and how it could be incorporated into ACP control programs or quarantine control programs.  The meetings will be held on April 26, 27 and 29 in Riverside, Ventura and Visalia area at the location and times below.  The purpose of the meetings is to solicit input from the industry on how the industry would like to use ethyl formate.  These would be roundtable discussions on the potential ways that the industry could structure the use.  We are looking for ideas that would maximize the efficiency and efficacy of the use.  This meeting is open to growers, PCAs, packinghouses and county officials who are interested in learning about ethyl formate and how it could be used. 

Speakers will include Draslovka’s Kade McConville and USDA-ARS’ Spencer Walse.
