Agronomy & Crops
The Farm Advisor develops programs for growers of the primary crops produced in Siskiyou County including alfalfa, pasture, other forage crops, small grains, and fruit crops. Our aim is to improve the overall profitability of farming operations in the county, while minimizing any negative impact these practices may have on the environment. Our research and educational activities cover a broad range of issues including variety selection, plant nutrition, pest control, irrigation management, improvement of water-use-efficiency, noxious weed control, and general crop management.
Producers and industry professionals can get the latest information on crop production and pest control strategies through research-based information developed in cooperation with growers, University research station staff and specialists through our newsletters and publications, field days, and personal contacts.
