Lunch & Learn Webinar -- The Intersection of Water Efficiency and Nitrogen Use

An op-ed this week in the LA Times from Dr. Jay Famiglietti of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena stated that California’s drought is so severe that the state’s reservoirs will run out of water in one year.  Enhancing water efficiency is more critical than ever.

WG’s Science & Technology Department has previously held webinars that highlighted regulatory issues related to water quality and safety, as well as strategies to maximize water efficiency.  Building on those topics, Western Growers is offering a webinar to discuss the current tools/technologies utilized in coastal and desert areas to assist with water efficiency, as well as some of the challenges growers face in these areas.  Experts will focus on the best management practices to handle nitrogen and how those techniques relate to water efficiency.

We hope you will REGISTER NOW to join us for this important webinar!
