The Fertilizer Research and Education Program (FREP) is teaming up with the University of California, Davis to host a biochar field day to highlight current research and showcase resources available to interested stakeholders.
Participants will have a chance to explore the in-field opportunities that biochar has to offer, and hear innovative research on the characteristics and impacts of biochar in agriculture. In the afternoon, a panel discussion and poster session will provide participants with the opportunity to network and ask questions about biochar production, application and products.
Please join us Wednesday, June 6, from 8:00 am-1:30 pm
Event registration is $15 and includes a hay-ride tour of Russell Ranch, in-field presentations, a panel discussion, lunch and a poster session.

We have submitted applications for continuing education for pesticide licensing and certified crop advisors. We have also submitted an application for nitrogen management continuing education, which would help to satisfy growers’ continuing education requirement for the Irrigated Lands Program. Applications are pending.
The California Irrigation Institute hosts an annual conference on California water issues, water use efficiency, water quality, and surface and groundwater management. The conference features leading water industry experts, government agency heads, water district managers, innovative farmers, and vendors with leading water saving products. The sessions aim to discuss research results and practical field experience.
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.
