Also, I hope you marked your calendar for our Cotton and Alfalfa Field Day set for Tuesday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to noon at Bowles Farming, the intersection of Hereford and Bisignani roads, in Los Banos. The speakers are: UC IPM Advisor Dr. Pete Goodell on insects and pests in alfalfa and cotton-managing the crop through mid-season; UCCE Fresno farm advisor Dan Munk on cotton crop development and its impact on pest management; and UCCE and UC Davis alfalfa specialist Dan Putnam on current issues affecting IPM in alfalfa. Directions are available in the of the Sustainable Cotton Project’s website – www.sustainablecotton.org. Two hours of continuing education credits have been applied for at each of the meetings. Both field days will offer lots of good information.
