Almond Orchard Cover Crop Field Day
03/21/2019 @ 9:30 AM - 12:30 PMFree
Curious about cover crops in almond orchards? Join UCCE Merced and UC Davis for an informative field day about maximizing the benefits of cover crops in almond orchards.
An integrative cover crop study has been implemented during the last two years in Merced, Tehama, and Kern counties. Many researchers have been looking at the effects of different vegetative covers on parameters such as soil health, weed suppression, nematode suppression, NOW management, pollination, and orchard water dynamics in almond orchards. A free field day will be hosted March 21st, 2019 from 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM in Merced County at 7250 Fox Rd Winton, CA, 95388. Come learn about “fresh-out-of-the-orchard” results from the cover crop trials from UCD, UCCE and other specialists. Continuing education credits have been applied for.
