Western Alfalfa and Forage Symposium @ Grand Sierra Resort, Reno, NV
Nov 19 – Nov 21 all-day

What is the Alfalfa Symposium?
The Western Alfalfa & Forage Symposium is a comprehensive program on the many issues facing alfalfa and forage crops.  Forages represent a major component of western farming and impact many other enterprises such as dairy farming, beef production, sheep, goats, as well as honey, agricultural industries and environmental issues.  This symposium covers topics ranging from economics and markets, regulatory trends, industry issues, pest management, forage quality, irrigation, genetics to impacts and the environment.  The symposium is a “must” for anyone interested in these important crops.

Organizational Process
The 2019 Western Alfalfa & Forage Symposium is organized by University Cooperative Extension Services of Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming, in cooperation with grower members of the California Alfalfa & Forage Association.  The symposium is currently in its 49th year, and is hosted by the California Alfalfa & Forage Association, representing thousands of California forage growers.

Who Should Attend?
Farmers, Pest Control Advisors, Certified Crop Advisors, industry members, agency representatives, Cooperative Extension personnel, and anyone who wishes to be informed about important issues related to alfalfa and forages.

Tue
Nitrogen Management Training for Certified Crop Advisers @ Wedgewood Weddings Fresno
Mar 3 @ 8:00 am – Mar 4 @ 12:00 pm

After six years of providing in-person Nitrogen Management Certification training, stakeholders have been in discussions to find an avenue to help new CCAs qualify to sign off on the Irrigation and Nitrogen Management Plans (INMP).  Limitations on the number of training opportunities and attendees has led the group to approach online learning and testing options to issue Nitrogen Management Certification after the March 2020 training.  The March 2020 Nitrogen Management Certification in Fresno will be the final training available before the new Certification program goes into effect.
