Two cover crop field days will be held for growers to learn the benefits of their use in almonds and other crops. The events are a collaborative effort between Project Apis m and Kamprath Seeds.
The field days will offer tips for managing cover crops, information on the free Seeds for Bees program, and will answer questions on frost concerns, organic matter management and concerns over the idea that cover crops compete with almond bloom.
The first event takes place Feb. 20 at the Oakdale School Farm, 8001 Brady Rd., Oakdale, Calif. The second takes place Feb. 22 at Tarke Farms, 8806 South Butte, Sutter, Calif.
