Stone Fruit Cutter Training – Yakima

According to the requirements of the systems approach for the export of stone fruits (apricots, peaches & nectarines) to Canada and the work plan for the export of apricots to Mexico, participating packing facilities must have trained employees to conduct the cull cutting portion of these protocols. Mexico requires two trained technical employees, while Canada merely requires that trained people do the work.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture and Washington State University conduct two group training sessions in May: one in Yakima; and one in Wenatchee. If you missed the session in your area you will need to contact your WSDA inspector (or other local agency if outside of WA) for in-house training.
