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.

“Increasing Pace and Scale: Local Action for Water, Soil, and Forest Resilience”
The California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) will continue the tradition of bringing together the conservation community from around the state at the 74th Annual CARCD Conference.
This year’s theme is “Increasing Pace and Scale: Local Action for Water, Soil, and Forest Resilience” and the conference will be held from November 12-15, 2019 at the Sheraton Hotel at the Sundial Bridge in Redding, California.
The Annual CARCD Conference is a highly anticipated event that brings together conservation practitioners, scientists, private landowners and land managers, legislators, non-profits—plus state, federal and regional agency representatives. Recent speakers have included the Secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the Director of the California Department of Conservation, and renowned researchers and advisors from the University of California, among others.
Please direct any questions to Kiko Barr, conference coordinator, who can be reached at email@example.com or (916) 836-4804. We look forward to seeing you in November!
