UKIAH, Calif. – As irrigation season fast approaches, farmers are urged to attend an upcoming and very informative irrigation field meeting.
The University of California Cooperative Extension will host the meeting from 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, May 22, at the Ruddick Ranch, 2400 Ruddick-Cunningham Road in Ukiah.
With all the issues surrounding water use on the North Coast, this meeting provides a great opportunity to discuss how to optimize your orchard irrigations and think about establishing a soil- and/or plant-based water use monitoring program.
After the irrigation portion, they will look at the Bartlett and Bosc pear rootstock trials established in 2005 in the Ruddick 5-foot by 10-foot high density planting.
While not required, please RSVP to Shelley Janek to plan for refreshments and handouts at email@example.com or 707-462-3664, Extension 103.
