Do you have questions on timing and methods for incorporating cover crop residue back into your soil? Or how to manage a cover crop through the spring and summer months?
Join the UC Cooperative Extension, Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County, USDA Agricultural Research Service, and Pajaro Valley growers at a cover crop field workshop. There you will share ideas with other growers and cover crop researchers on the benefits, challenges, and management strategies for including cover crop in many different production scenarios, including:

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.
