After twenty years of being the advocate for Ambrosia through promotion, quality improvement and grower education, the New Tree Fruit Varieties Development Council will not approach the growers for a renewed mandate. Instead, the NTFVDC has contracted with Ference and Company, to investigate the feasibility of transitioning NTFVDC into a Marketing Commission for Ambrosia.
We invite all growers and other interested participants to join the Zoom meeting on Wednesday October 20, 2021, at 6:30 pm (PST); please pre-register to obtain the meeting link. A poll will be conducted during the meeting to assess wider grower opinions for the proposal.
