Arroyo Colorado

August 20, 2019 

Hello Arroyo Partners, 

It has been brutally hot since the Flooding event last month.  We are breaking records with triple digit temperatures on a daily basis.  I hope this is not the new normal here in the Valley. Cotton harvesting is in full swing with farmers trying to complete harvesting before any September rain.  Good Luck everyone!  

I want to announce 2 upcoming Irrigation Management and Technology Workshops.

These free producer program will highlight current irrigation management techniques and technologies available to growers that have the potential to add efficiency to their operations and conserve water resources. Discussion items will include irrigation scheduling, irrigation management techniques, new technologies available to the grower and salinity management. Economics and value of irrigation water will also be highlighted. Options for chemigation and fertigation discussion will provide 1 hour of CEU credit for TDA pesticide applicator license holders.
