Workshops & Classes

Please join us for a series of Briefings by the PACMAN Research and Extension teams to update you on what we see as the current state of precision crop load management of apples. We are entering our third year of the USDA/NIFA/SCRI-funded research and Extension project titled “Precision Crop Load Management for Apples” and we have interesting insights to share with you regarding your vision-based technologies and potential management implications! In addition, industry partners have been hard at work developing “turnkey” solutions to assessing your apple crop load management efforts and are invited to participate in a “show and tell.” (Barring any hard sales pitch of course!)
