FRUIT TREE CARE AND PRUNING FOR SUMMER
WED. 5/12/2021, 6:00PM – 7:30PM
ZOOM LIVE CLASS BY INVITATION
To prune or not to prune. Pruning for plants is not like a haircut for us humans. Pruning can mean the difference between a flourishing healthy plant that bears bountiful fruit or one that lags behind. Pruning can also be used to help plants recover from both biotic and abiotic stresses. This class will cover how, when and why to make cuts, as well as the proper tools for the job.
PRESENTER: Justin Duncan has a BS in Agronomy from Prairie View A&M University, an 1890 Land Grant Institution, and an MS in Plant Breeding from Texas A&M University. Justin has spent years figuring out the nuts-and-bolts of successful organic farming in the humid South, concentrating mainly on sweet potatoes, strawberries, niche market ethnic crops and drought mitigation techniques. Justin formerly served as the Houston region director of the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and has strong rapport with organic farmers in Eastern Texas. He now works with the National Center for Appropriate Technology as a Sustainable Agriculture Specialist where he helps farmers around the country with their crop and pest issues and develops publications on sustainable agriculture topics.
