Acerca de

_____________

Western Pecan Growers Association se estableció en 1966. Nuestra misión es promover y desarrollar una próspera industria de nueces en el suroeste. Celebramos una conferencia anual y una feria comercial el primer domingo de marzo.

La conferencia de la Western Pecan Growers Association 2021 Ha Sido Pospuesta

La Western Pecan Growers Association ha decidido organizar seminarios web trimestrales de 2 horas este año. Estos eventos incluirán presentaciones educativas sobre temas de control de plagas estacionales. Los créditos CEU también se ofrecerán con estos webinars. También habrá presentaciones rotativas de cada organización del estado de nuez dentro de la región occidental, además de diferentes presentaciones cada trimestre de algunas de nuestras otras organizaciones que pertenecen al márketing. Si bien nada puede reemplazar nuestra conferencia en persona, los miembros de la junta de WPGA toman esta decisión después de considerar las restricciones de viaje y la amenaza dinámica para la salud de nuestros miembros que representa el coronavirus. Su seguridad es nuestra prioridad y estamos considerando todas las opciones para garantizar que la conferencia de 2021 sea segura. Anunciaremos los horarios de los seminarios web en una fecha posterior.
