WINE GRAPE PURCHASES,RAISIN PRODUCTION, & SHIPMENTS
RBA Board Member Dwayne Cardoza
Dear RBA Growers,
If you have mealeybug and are planning to make raisins, farm advisors are recommending that you burn your used paper trays. By shredding your paper trays you may risk transferring the mealybug. The pest can be transferred by wind, trailer, and tractor tires to adjcent fields.
Dear RBA Members,
Your Board of Directors have brought back the popular “Membership Drive.” Anyone who signs a new Raisin Grower into the RBA, and they deliver to a RBA Signatory Packer will receive a ten dollar ($10.00) per ton award for the 2017/18 crop year. If you need “Membership Agreements,” call our office and we will mail them to you. (559-221-1925)
