Growers in San Benito County are encouraged to attend a series of free workshops hosted by the San Benito County Water District in January and February.
The workshops will focus on general aspects of irrigation and fertilizer management, with an emphasis on production efficiency.
These presentations will be integrated within the background of a new regulatory environment for water quality protection
Instructor: Dr. Marcus Buchanan
Buchanan has experience in soil fertility, plant physiology and nutrition in many irrigated annual and perennial, warm and cool season crops. During the past 15 years, he worked as a University of California faculty member and as a independent consultant in the areas of nutrient and irrigation management, solid waste and wastewater land application projects in Central California.
This work has been performed privately for growers, food processors, wineries, and for public water and irrigation districts.
