Mark your calendar for October 6th-9th in Missoula, MT.
This year, the biennial MWCC Symposium will be a Joint Fall Meeting with Montana Watershed Coordination Council (MWCC) and Montana chapter of American Water Resources Association (AWRA). Scientists want to do relevant work and water managers want to work on projects that are supported by good scientific information. There are examples of this around Montana, and we want to highlight them. Partners are also offering a capacity building workshop on the Tuesday preceding the symposium.
The NRCS and the MSU Extension will be hosting a workshop that will cover topics relating to high tunnel and greenhouse management. The workshop will present on topics that will benefit those who manage diversified vegetable farms and gardens utilizing high tunnels and greenhouses. Specialists will present on topics such as:
Crop rotations for soil fertility and season extension;
Integrated pest management of insects and diseases;
Personal Protective Equipment, safety considerations, and calibration of equipment;
Tour of the Western Agricultural Research Center;
MSU Extension services and NRCS cost share programs to assist agricultural producers.
