Ag Instrumentation Workshop

This is a two-part train-the-trainer workshop for agricultural instrumentation.

This SARE-sponsored ag instrumentation workshop will focus on train-the-trainer for six different instruments: soil probes (for collecting soil samples), hay testing probes (for collecting hay samples), pH meters, tensiometers (measures soil water content), PAR meters (measures light transmission, e.g., through greenhouse film), a smart flow meter (tests irrigation systems). A limited number of instruments will be available to participants through the grant program. Those receiving grant-funded instruments will need to complete a report on outreach conducted and clientele reached.  

Dates: January 15 and January 22, 2021

Time: 9 am - 11 am PST / 10 am - 12 pm MST
