There are over 2.7 million acres of hay and grain crops in California, most of which are alfalfa and wheat. These crops produce a tremendous amount of food for humans, particularly milk, cheeses, and yogurts from forages, and bread and pastas from wheat. This comprehensive conference will focus on the many issues related to forage and grain crops, particularly global issues, economics and crop production techniques. Discussion topics will include water management, fertilizers and nutrients, crop quality and pest management.
The Alfalfa Symposium is intended for farmers, pest control advisers, certified crop advisors, industry members, agency representatives and anyone who wishes to become informed about important issues related to alfalfa and grains.
