At these free workshops, Dr. Alyssa Cho of CTAHR will teach macadamia nut growers to manage pests in the orchard, with a focus on macadamia felted coccid (MFC). Growers will learn integrated pest management strategies and monitoring protocols. The workshop will also cover best practices for chemical control, including calibration and determining application rates.
