Olive orchard management training in Victoria May 29
Prospective and current olive growers will have an opportunity to learn about the opportunities and challenges of growing olives in an orchard management training Thursday, May 29, at 8:30 a.m. in the Victoria Educational Gardens Pavilion located at 283 Bachelor Drive in Victoria.
The training, “Olive Orchard Management: Planning, Practices and Challenges,” will be presented by three Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service fruit crops specialists. The trio will review soil and site preparation, irrigation and nutrition, varieties, disease control, weed management, and other topics important to growing olives in Texas.
Registration is $20 per person, payable to the Victoria Ag Fund, or in cash at the door. The program is sponsored by the Texas Olive Oil Council.
Two pesticide continuing education units -- one general and one integrated pest management -- are offered.
Those interested in attending are asked to contact the AgriLife Extension office in Victoria County, 361-575-4581, or AgriLife Extension agent Peter McGuill at firstname.lastname@example.org to register and reserve a meal.
