Subject: Join us for the next PPIC dryland ag workshop May 18th 2-4pm || Seeking grower/producer voices

Hello all,

With water issues as pressing as ever, we’re hoping you can join us for a workshop in the “Envisioning a Less-Irrigated Future in the San Joaquin Valley” series entitled “A Problem Solving Session for Dryland Ag: Economic and Agronomic Questions.” The workshop will be held virtually via ZOOM on May 18th, from 2-4pm pacific time. Instructions on how to join can be found below.

We’ll be working interactively to grapple with some of the major stumbling blocks for winter and dryland cropping systems in the Valley, and to think about concrete solutions and recommendations - if, when, and where these systems have a place in Valley agriculture.

We are hoping to highlight producer voices, and the conversation will benefit from folks with on-the-ground experience in Valley agriculture and dryland farming in particular. For the producers, farm managers, and extension professionals on our list, I’m hoping you can help ensure that we have strong representation from Valley producers at this session by reaching out to any folks you know of that could benefit from the topics up for discussion or contribute to our conversation in a constructive way. To that end, please pass along this message and the attached event flyer to 1-2 folks in your network who you think should be at the table.

As ever, don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or suggestions.
