Hear from the Experts
Our two hazelnut orchard growers are experts on their own land. People who join us on the field day will get to hear first hand about their experiences using these ground covers.
We’ll also get a chance to hear from our two special guest speakers. Nik Wiman, OUS Orchard Crops Specialist, will be on hand. We’ll also be joined by Shannon Cappellazi. She is the Director of Research at GO Seed.
Funding for this field day is provided by Oregon Department of Agriculture. Special thanks too for the assistance from our partners at Clackmaas River Basin Council.
