Solano Co. Ag Summit on Sustainable Groundwater Management Act - 5/26/16 6pm

Solano County Agricultural Summit on the
Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA)

WHEN: Thursday, May 26, 2016, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
WHERE: Ulatis Community Center, 1000 Ulatis Drive, Vacaville, CA
REGISTRATION: Space is limited, please register at: http://solanoagsummitsgma.eventbrite.com. Event is free with refreshments provided.

Hosted by: Dixon Resource Conservation District, Napa-Solano Cattlemen & Woolgrowers’ Association, Solano County Agricultural Advisory Committee, Solano County Department of Agriculture, Solano County Farm Bureau, Solano Land Trust, Solano Resource Conservation District, UC Cooperative Extension, USDA-NRCS Solano Co.

The above organizations invite all agricultural producers in Solano County to attend this very important meeting regarding how groundwater will be regulated. This is a rare opportunity for agriculture’s collective voice to influence a regulatory process, and nothing is more important to agriculture than water.  This meeting builds on the SGMA information workshops held earlier this year and will have two major objectives:

1. Develop a unified message from the agricultural community on SGMA.
2. Explore how the agricultural community’s interests can be best represented in a Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA).

This critical issue requires the attention of all farmers and ranchers in Solano County. Please make this a high priority to attend. Attendees will include farmers and ranchers, agency representatives and elected officials.

Reminders: Grower opinions of wildlife survey / April 11 Hedgerow Workshop

SURVEY SEEKS GROWER OPINIONS OF WILDLIFE 

Researchers at the University of California, Davis and the UC Cooperative Extension are launching a survey to understand the concerns and expectations that Central Valley farmers  and landowners have for birds and bats on their managed land.

Over 20 bat species and 300 bird species can be found in California, many of which use the state¹s farmland for some or all of their life cycles.

The survey is available online at http://wfcb.ucdavis.edu/farmer-survey. Survey participation is voluntary, and all responses will remain anonymous.

2014 California Alfalfa, Forage and Grains Symposium
Wednesday-Friday, December 10-12, 2014
Long Beach Convention Center
AGENDA     REGISTRATION

For more information, please click HERE

As California grows nearly 3 million acres of alfalfa, grains, silages and other forage crops, there is a strong need to share information. This will be a comprehensive meeting to focus on critical issues related to alfalfa and grain crops, particularly global issues, economics, and practical 'how to' talks on crop production techniques.

There are tremendous opportunities to learn something new by visiting with knowledgeable scientists, growers, and industry members and pest control experts.

This year we feature a special focus on water and irrigation, and also exports, silages, genetics, pest management, and quality. Take a look at the program. There is an opportunity for exhibits as well as a tour of export operations.

We hope to see you there.

Sincerely,

Dan Putnam, Chair 2014 Symposium (on behalf of the program committee)
Alfalfa/Forage Specialist, UC Davis

Who should attend?
Farmers, Pest Control Advisors and Certified Crop Advisors, industry members, agency representatives and anyone who wishes to be informed about important issues related to alfalfa, forage crops and grains.

Dry Bean Variety Trial Meeting - Sept. 6th

UC Davis Dry Bean Field Meeting to View Breeding/Variety Trials

Thursday, September 6, 2012, 10-11:30 am 

This trial includes plantings of lima bean: Advanced generations of large bush lima, a core collection from CIAT, nitrogen trials, and a small collection of the Caribbean (the latter two are introductions to start testing for nematode rand lygus resistance once seed increases have occurred). Common bean plantings include seed treatment trials, F4 generations of cranberry beans being selected for growth habit, seed type, and absence of shattering. There is also the Cooperative Dry Bean Nursery and a nursery with drought tolerant materials. Dr. Paul Gepts, UC Davis Plant Sciences is looking forward to feedback from growers and industry on these trials and on how commercial fields are looking this year.

This meeting will be followed by a free lunch with tri-tip, beans, salad, fresh fruit, and sodas. Please RSVP with Rachael Long at the UCCE office in Woodland (530) 666-8734 or rflong@ucdavis.edu if you plan to stay for lunch. 

Directions: UC Davis Agronomy Farm: From Highway 113, go west on Hutchison Drive about 1.5 miles (turning north at the first round-a-bout and west at the second). Turn south on Hopkins Rd off Hutchison Drive. Turn east just past the Agriculture and Natural Resources building and park along the fence under the olive trees across from Bee Biology (same field as the last several years).
