This calendar is composed of outreach events related to agricultural management practices that align with FREP’s mission. To add an outreach event, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop will focus on fertilizers and their use in nursery operations. The first half of this program will describe fertilizer types such as granular fertilizers, Controlled Release Fertilizers (CRFs) and liquid fertilizers. We will describe the pros and cons of each fertilizer type and how to optimize fertilizer performance. The second half of the program will be dedicated to monitoring and measuring the quality of irrigation water and media. We will identify and demonstrate methods of conducting on-site tests for measuring media quality and water quality. We will then review protocols for proper sampling for off-site sample analyses.
Bring a cup of water sample (from your irrigation water) OR a one gallon pot to test the quality of the water and measure pH.

This event will assist attendees in understanding Distribution Uniformity (DU) and how it affects water use efficiency. Additionally, attendees will get a basic understanding of how water moves in the soil, how nitrogen (nitrates) move with that water, and how to keep nutrients and water in the root zone. This will assist growers with compliance for NMPs. Different examples will be sited. The event will provide CURES credits and for CCAs.
