The Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Program (CPDPP) is hosting three free training workshops for field crew supervisors and farm labor contractors. All three workshops will be held in Spanish and will review best practices for field crews on how to properly prevent the spread of Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP), the vector for HLB.
Workshops will take place at the following:
- Monday, August 21 at 10 a.m. – Escondido, San Diego County
- Tuesday, August 22 at 10 a.m. – Santa Paula, Ventura County
- Thursday, August 24 at 8 a.m. – Exeter, Tulare County
During the workshop, participants will:
- Learn best practices for field crews to prevent ACP from spreading in between neighboring groves.
- Practice using effective communication techniques to help their crews and others understand these best practices and why they are important.
- Understand the threat of HLB to the livelihood of the California citrus industry.
The workshops will fulfill the requirement listed in CDFA’s harvesters/farm labor contractors’ compliance agreement. Compliance agreements will also be available at the workshops.
