The second workshop will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will cover Food Safety: What’s next from the State and Federal Perspective.

The third and final workshop is brought to you by the Citrus Research Board and will begin at 2:30 p.m. This workshop will give you information on The Latest Available Strategies for Managing ACP in Your Orchards. Dr. Beth Grafton-Cardwell will provide an overview of the psyllid management tactics that are currently being conducted around the state and the level of control being achieved. She will then discuss new tactics that could be added to the grower repertoire to improve the program.

PAC Raffle Drawing

This year we will be giving away a gun to two lucky winners. The first raffle item is the very popular, easily concealed Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm handgun. The lightweight, narrow grip makes it ideal for both women and men to handle. The second raffle item is the Henry Big Boy .357, Lever-Action Rifle. Enjoy the traditional look, feel, reliability and accuracy that comes from this wonderful rifle.

Tickets are available for $50 by calling California Citrus Mutual at (559) 592-3790. All proceeds will go to the CCM Political Action Committee Fund.
