ATTENTION RAISIN GROWERS!
2012 will mark 31 years since the first San Joaquin Valley Grape Symposium. The inaugural symposium was held at the old Hacienda Inn at Clinton Ave. and 99 Hwy in Fresno, CA. The meeting had presentations by farm advisors and specialist covering soils, irrigation, grapevine nutrition and mechanical pruning in addition to other topics. This years meeting will be similar but will focus on raisin production and marketing activities.
The 2012 SJV Grape Symposium is being held at the C.P.D.E.S. Hall in Easton, CA and will include a catered lunch highlighting dishes made with raisins. The California Raisin Marketing Board is co-sponsoring the meeting and will be sharing raisin marketing activities that took place throughout the nation.
