Date Book 2010-2014

My collaborator is the Coachella Valley Resource Conservation District.  The consumer demand for dates (fresh and processed) has led to an increase in new date plantings and an influx of new growers.  There is limited information on the common date varieties and the cultural practices of these varieties.  Also covered in this book will be the major insect and diseases on dates.  For example ripening date fruit is susceptible to fungal growth and can be problematic during the ripening and packing stage during periods of high moisture and humidity.
