I had the chance to give Isaya a tour of western and eastern Kern county pistachio and almond orchards using microsprinkler, single and double-line drip on Tuesday 9/19/17 and give him a thumbnail history of the change in crop acreage over the last 40 years from when half the Kern acreage was cotton to the present where the cotton acreage is now < half of the almond and pistachio acreage. Micro irrigation systems in permanent crops are a new area for Isaya. Looking forward to future collaborations.

Thank you Dr. Mitchell for the nice blog. Dan and Blake thank you for coordinating my visit to SJV. I enjoyed all the visits and seeing all the great work being done to optimize agricultural water use under limited water resources. I look forward to many fruitful collaborations.
