CropManage is a free online decision support tool for water and nutrient management of coastal crops. Even with the wet winter, water conservation will continue to be of concern in Ventura County, and water regulations will continue to be tied to efficient nutrient management. CropManage can play an important role in providing quick decision support on water and nutrient management on a field-by-field basis.
At this free workshop, we provide hands-on training so you can learn how to navigate and use CropManage for assisting with water and nitrogen management decisions and record-keeping. We will also cover updates to CropManage, which will making it more compatible with in-field use by farm staff.
Crops currently supported by CropManage include strawberry, head and romaine lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, spinach, baby lettuce, cilantro, and mizuna. CropManage will soon include leaf lettuce and bell peppers.
Who should participate: Ventura County vegetable and berry growers, ranch managers, and other farm staff, and technical service providers are welcome. The workshop is for both new and current CropManage users.
What to bring: This is a hands on workshop so please bring a tablet or laptop computer so that you can follow along.
