2021 Statewide Spring Tree Fruit Webinar Series

This Webinar Series was developed specifically for commercial tree fruit producers. Backyard and hobbyist fruit growers should refer to Ask an Expert for questions and assistance.

Please join us for the 2021 Statewide Spring Tree Fruit Webinar Series. The series will include presentations on pest management and horticultural topics as well as time for attendees to ask questions. The webinars are free of charge and will be held over the lunch hour from 12-1 p.m. (EDT), Monday through Friday from April 5-16, 2021.

Pre-registration is required to attend as well as to receive MDARD Pesticide Applicator Certification credits. To receive credits, you must provide your applicator number on the pre-registration form. Pre-registration for each day's webinar closes the day before the webinar will be held. For example, pre-registration for the April 5th webinar closes at the end of the day on April 4th. If plans change after you pre-register, you can revisit this page to sign up for a webinar that you would like to attend as long as it is before pre-registration closes for that day's webinar.

Certified Crop Advisor credits will also be available by using a QR code at the end of each webinar. CCAs, please do not provide your CCA numbers on the registration form.

Participants will receive a Zoom link via email the morning of the scheduled webinar.
