Bittenbender talk

Dr. Skip Bittenbender will be giving a talk on plant nutrients and pest
control on Saturday, March 3 and will start somewhere between 9:15 am and
9:30 am (depending how long it takes us to set up the room).? You’re welcome
to come a little earlier (say 8:45 – 9:00 am) and help us.

After his talk (which he estimates will last an hour), Skip will answer
questions.? You are welcome to bring questions, samples, etc.? After the
question and answer period, we will have a brown bag lunch period.? After
that, we’ll go down to a Coffee farm.? Carl Leix had started a pruning
demo under Skip’s guidance, and Gerry Ross and Janet Simpson have continued
it.? So Skip will talk about the pruning project (I believe we’re starting
the 3rd year into the project).? He’ll also show how to determine the age of
the lateral growth.? Again, this is a good opportunity for questions.? He
needs to leave by 5 pm for the airport.

If you’re planning on coming? please let me know (email:
or phone: 244-3242), even if you were at the meeting last night please contact me for the location.?
Hope to see you there!
