Alfalfa farming in spotlight July 15

San Joaquin Valley alfalfa growers will learn the latest strategies to tackle nagging pest problems while implementing farming practices to improve air and water quality during a July 15 field day in Dos Palos, Calif.

Sponsored by the San Joaquin Sustainable Farming Project, the free event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon at the Scout Hut, 1902 Marguerite St. at Center Avenue, Dos Palos. Leading experts will cover integrated pest management and water quality protection, reducing volatile organic compound emissions and the impact of alfalfa farming on the San Joaquin River Watershed.

Featured speakers are: Pete Goodell, University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management advisor; Rachel Long, a UC Cooperative Extension Yolo County farm advisor; and Chris Linneman of the Westside San Joaquin River Water Quality Coalition.
