Avogrow webinar series

Avocado nutrition under Californian conditions

Ben Faber from the University of California Cooperative Extension will be joining us to share his experience with nutrient management for avocado orchards in California.

Ben has been a Farm Advisor in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties since 1989, covering issues associated with production of subtropical crops. These topics include soil and plant nutrition, pests and diseases, management of crops during heat waves, soil and water improvements and overall crop productivity. His emphasis is on subtropical tree crops, such as citrus, avocado and cherimoya and Ben’s goal is to contribute to profitable agriculture  systems that optimise people and natural resources.
