2024 Virtual Orchard Meetups – Water Wisdom: Navigating Tree Fruit Production Through Drought and Deluge

June 6 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until June 27, 2024


Please join us for our fourth season of Virtual Orchard Meetups, running weekly:

Every Thursday from June 6 to June 27

4:00 PM (PDT) – 7:00 PM (EDT)


Since 2021, the North American Summer Virtual Meetup Program has brought together growers, researchers, Extension, and government to have a conversation about important tree fruit topics. Connecting industry leaders across North America, over 20 experts are involved in these 90-minute online forums, interacting with more than 1,000 participants.

Our fourth series will focus on “Water Wisdom: Navigating Tree Fruit Production Through Drought and Deluge”. Over the past decade, growers have experienced unpredictable rainfall, water availability challenges, droughts and deluges. We want to explore methods for adapting to these challenges and discuss alternatives for efficient irrigation practices, including advances in irrigation technologies that help growers produce high quality fruit.

In addition to the primary speakers, viewers are invited to share solutions, ask questions, and interact with the specialists and grower panelists. Preregistration is not required to attend. To join, simply go to the Meet-Up Zoom Site. If you can’t access, copy and paste the URL in your browser.


While each meeting builds off the one preceding it—and we hope you can attend all three—they also function as “standalone” meetings if you are not able to attend them all. You can download and import the following this iCalendar (.ics) files to your calendar system.

Whether you are a fruit grower with ample experience, one that has modest experience, or one that is just getting started, Virtual Orchard Meetups will be the right setting for you to ask questions and find alternative solutions.
