If you're planning to attend the World Ag Exp in Tulare this week, be sure to stop by Seminar Trailer 2 between 1-3 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday to catch the UC Dairy Series.
Talks will include presentations on water and nutrient management for forage crops (full agenda here), including information about maximizing water productivity from winter cereals in the face of increasing drought and regulations on water use. This "Water-wise Dairying" session will take place...
We're off to a good start to the rainfall year! As farmers begin to turn attention to fall-planted small grains, be sure to check out UC's extension resources on the UC Small Grains Research and Information Center and the associated UC Small Grains Blog. Resources include the following:
UC Davis and UC Cooperative Extension are excited to share newly developed tools that optimize nitrogen (N) fertilizer management in wheat and other small grains. The new tools and case studies illustrating how they've been applied in commercial settings will be discussed at an upcoming webinar on 11/4/2021 from 2-4 PM (2 INMP/CURES CEU credits available for those who REGISTER).
These tools are the product of many years of UC research and include an interactive website that provides customized, site-specific nitrogen fertilizer recommendations. Recommendations are based on monitoring of crop health and...
