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.

Times, agenda and lunch information will be posted closer to the event date.
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.

The workshop key learnings will be:
• Identify and understand the role of plant nutrients in plant growth and their role in plant growth.
• Identify plant nutrient deficiency and toxicity symptoms.
• Understand the sources and movement of fertilizers in a nursery production system.
• Develop the groundwork for optimizing fertilizer use in a container nursery operation.
The workshop key learnings include:
• Have a working knowledge of fertilizer types.
• Choose the proper fertilizer(s) to optimize plant growth and have a sustainable operation
• Use fertilizers properly to optimize nutrient uptake into plants
• Monitor media and water quality
• Develop a record keeping program to track production with fertilizer usage
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!
