"Soil, Water, and Pest Management Training for Field Workers in Spanish"
Tuesday, March 24th, 2020, 8:00 - 11:30
142A Garden Highway, Yuba City
This training is for field managers and operators working on field crops such as rice, wheat, alfalfa, beans, sunflower, etc. Tree crops managers and operators are welcomed as well, but the emphasis will be in field crops.
The training aims to give field workers without formal education a basic understanding of plant physiology, soil management, water use, and pest management, so they understand field operations better and become more engaged in the farming operations.
The training will be conducted in Spanish. For questions, contact Luis Espino, 530-635-6234 or Sarah Light, 530-822-7515.
