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...
Weather patterns are highly variable across the state of California. They change from year to year and across locations. While parts of the state may be experiencing drought conditions this year (Figure 1), each location can have dramatically different weather. For growers and agronomists, location-specific weather information is essential to understand plant growth and water use. It is also important for planning field management activities such as fertilization and irrigation.
We have created a new interactive website where users can access their location-specific precipitation and temperature data:
