Spaces remain for postharvest short course

A limited number of spaces are left for the annual UC Davis Postharvest Technology Short Course, which will be held June 17-28.

This course is a two-week study of the biology and current technologies used for handling fruits, nuts, vegetables and ornamentals in California. The first week will be spent on campus with lectures, discussions and hands-on laboratory work. The optional second week will feature field tours of California processing, cooling, storage, distribution and field harvest facilities.

It is designed for research and Extension workers, quality control personnel in the produce industry, and business, government or academic professionals interested in current advances in the postharvest technology of horticultural crops. It is particularly of interest to technical professionals responsible for quality assurance, research and Extension activities related to fresh produce quality, safety and marketability.
