Guest Lecture on Avocado Fruit Set and Yield Factors

Iñaki Hormaza, Professor, La Mayora Research Station (CSIC) Malaga, Spain will guest lecture about Factors Influencing Avocado Fruit Set and Yield on Jan. 13th and Jan. 14th. 

Iñaki’s research is applicable to California Avocado growers since it is important to know why certain flowers produce fruit and others do not.

Hormaza’s research has examined the role of starch (energy) on fruit set and yield, pollen viability, pollen tube growth and ovule viability. He is also conducting research looking at pollinizers, new varieties and rootstocks. 

Pre-registration is required by Friday, Jan. 10th.  To register, contact John Cornell at
