Drip irrigation of tomatoes seminar March 9, Stockton

Drip irrigation of tomatoes seminar March 9, Stockton, is intended for commercial growers who are new to using drip irrigation for tomatoes, or those who will begin using drip this season.

Friday, March 9, 2012, 9:00 a.m. to Noon

Robert J. Cabral Agricultural Center, 2101 E. Earhart Ave, Stockton Calif., 95206

Sponsored by San Joaquin County Resource Conservation District and UC Cooperative Extension

This class is intended for commercial growers who are new to using drip irrigation for tomatoes, or those who will begin using drip this season. Although some of the information will be specific to processing tomatoes, the majority of the con-tent will be applicable to both fresh market and processing production systems.

The goal is to give participants some practical information on using and maintaining a drip irrigation system. Topics to be covered include irrigation strategies, fertigation, system maintenance and irrigation scheduling using a computer demonstration of how to use data from CIMIS to determine irrigation needs. We also hope to provide a forum for answering your questions!

This meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Brenna Aegerter at (209) 953‐6114.
