The California Alfalfa & Forage Association supports filling the proposed position “Area Agronomy Advisor, Yolo, Solano, Sacramento Counties”. Yolo, Solano, and Sacramento counties are important areas of alfalfa and forage production. Currently, farmers in this area are not being served by a Cooperative Extension advisor. These family farmers would benefit significantly from having access to a farm advisor focused on optimizing agronomic field and row crop systems. An advisor of this sort will allow growers to increase their returns while conserving natural resources and protecting the environment.
As an alfalfa grower in Yolo County, I totally support filling the proposed position "Area Agronomy Advisor, Yolo, Solano and Sacramento Counties." We have been blessed in the past by having at our beck and call such outstanding advisors like Carl Shoner. Our area would benefit greatly by having a dedicated advisor as many operators grow agronomic field and row crops. Since our economic survival depends on the judicious use of all inputs used in producing our crops, it is imperative that we have access to up to date knowledge and advice. Therefore, I believe filling this position is very important for the continued success of our area's agricultural enterprises.
