It’s not too soon to start preparing for next year’s growing season, and New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service is hosting a six-part online series on sustainable agriculture topics to help growers get a head start this fall.
Due to the global health emergency, the NM WSARE program will forgo the traditional NM Sustainable Agriculture Conference this year. In its place, a series of webinars will be presented that focus on the many aspects that make a farm sustainable in New Mexico. Topics include: Seed saving, preventing herbicide-resistant weeds, promoting beneficial insects, growing vegetables in NM, fruit tree pruning, and drip irrigation. The free webinars will be 3 to 4 p.m. every Thursday from Oct. 1 through Nov. 5.
Did you ever want to learn how and why drip irrigation can be useful for your growing operation? In this week’s webinar, Dr. Bradley Tonnessen, Program Specialist in Vegetable Extension, will map out what it takes to start with an empty field and install a working irrigation system.
