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.
INDUSTRY EXPERTS WILL COVER:
- How to maximize yield potential
- How to stay up to date with the ever-changing regulatory environment
- Tips to increase water and energy efficiency
A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
RSVP: Ann Friedrich (email@example.com)
Available CCA Continuing Education Units:
Nutrient Management: 0.5
Soil & Water Management: 0.5
The Nickels Soil Lab’s 2019 field day is set for May 7, with registration starting at 8:30 a.m. The event will be held at facility on Green Bay Road in Arbuckle.
Topics on the program include:
- Walnut hedging for bot management.
- Erosion management options.
- Nematodes in walnuts/rootstock trial.
- Nitrogen in Walnuts: What, When, Where & How Much?
- Honey bee hive strength.
- Evaluation of Independent Irrigation Management of Different Varieties within the Same Almond Orchard during Pre-Harvest and Post-Harvest Periods.
- NOW management in almonds.
- Postharvest nitrogen fertilization of almonds in the Sacramento Valley.
One hour of PCA CE credits has been requested and 2.5 hours of CCA CE credits have been approved.
Estimating yield is both important and difficult. Accurate projections of crop size are necessary for both logistical and financial planning. Growers will share their experience and wisdom when it comes to estimating a crop including their methods, tips and techniques. Different methods will be compared and discussed. We will also dip into the theory behind making estimates.

Join us on this educational and social event to exchange knowledge and experience about nitrogen management in strawberry production on the central coast, while sharing a tasty seafood platter with fellow strawberry growers!
When: Friday October 11th, 10:30am – 1:00pm Where: 880 Airport Blvd Watsonville (Ramos Farms)
Hosted by RCD of Santa Cruz County, University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE), and Ramos Farms
FREE admission, Please RSVP: (831) 224-0293
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.
The USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and the National Grape Research Alliance (NGRA) are
partnering to produce the NGRA-ARS Sensor Technology Workshop to be held this fall in Sacramento, CA.
Join wine and grape industry principals to hear from scientists about the sensors
that support grape-growing today (including the strengths and shortcomings of these offerings),
what’s in the research pipeline and what advances are on the horizon.
In this dynamic event, the scientists will gain valuable insight about sensor technologies, too,
from a panel of early-adopters, from industry attendees and from fellow researchers, as well.
Be a part of the exploration!
