Dr. Holmes kicks off PLSC 450 seminar series

Strawberry Center Director Gerald Holmes kicked off his Spring 2024 "PLSC 450: Current Issues in the Strawberry Industry" seminar series course with an overview lecture about strawberry production practices. His presentation included comprehensive production process information as well as several real-world field videos that he has captured over the years.

In this course, students truly receive a front row seat for the strawberry industry by listening to seasoned professionals deliver diverse lectures. According to Gerald, “I’ve been teaching this course for 8 years. The recorded lectures now make a substantial library of topics and speakers that cover a broad range of subjects of great interest in California strawberry production. And our students have the chance to interact directly with industry experts.”
