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.
This short course will focus on the practical aspects of organic soil fertility management for fast-maturing leafy green vegetables and long-season strawberry production.
Topics will focus on the contribution of various sources of nitrogen for crop production, including mineralization from soil organic matter, release of inorganic nitrogen from organic fertilizers and composts, and the contribution of prior crop residues, cover crops, and irrigation water.
Growers, consultants, and those involved in organic soil fertility management will find this course valuable.

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.

What this meeting will cover: The use of sugar beets as a winter forage crop on dairies in the San Joaquin Valley. Sugar beets were planted in late October in 2018 on the Legacy Dairy near Pixley, California. They were harvested in late June and co-ensiled with almond hulls. Root yields approached 60 tons per acre fresh weight. Beets are used commonly as feed in Arizona, where winter production is the most efficient way to produce large amounts of highly digestible, high energy forage with minimal amounts of water. They have similar potential for dairy farmers in the San Joaquin Valley.
What we will talk about: This meeting will present results from the feed beet project at the Legacy Dairy including growing the crop and yields, general sugar beet production guidelines for dairy farms, forage yields and quality, making silage, and how to feed sugar beet forage to high producing dairy cows.
Who should come? Dairymen, dairy nutritionists, and crop advisors working with dairy producers.
