New Website Resource for Sac Valley Tree Crop Production

The UC Cooperative Extension Orchard Crop Advisors in the Sacramento Valley are excited to announce the launch of our new website – the Sacramento Valley Orchard Source! This site will bring together the wealth of information we provide in one location, including:

  • Timely newsletter articles through our Blog
  • Weekly Soil Moisture Loss (ET) Reports for the Northern and Southern Sacramento Valley
  • Pest Catch Reports based on weekly scouting in the Northern Sacramento Valley
  • Crop-specific production and management information for almonds, prunes and walnuts
  • Calendar of area Cooperative Extension meetings & events

We’ve built this site for you, the growers, PCAs, managers and allied industries. Please let us know what you think so we can continue to improve it.
