UCCE: Water Diversion and Hemp Workshops

From the people who sing songs how great glyphosate (RoundUp) is………Hemp uses alot of water and is being grown all over the country where they have more water resources and better weather.  

Upcoming Workshops:
Water diversion: monitoring and reporting training
Hemp Grower Workshop: Growing Hemp in Sonoma County
If you are a diverter with water rights for more than 100 AF and you would like to be able to install and maintain your water measurement devices without having to hire a “qualified individual”, or you would like to have a property lessee or employee be able to do so, then this course is for you, your lessees or employees.
Diverters with less than 100 AF water rights also have the option to attend if desired. These courses are not frequently offered in all areas of the state.
If you have previously taken this training (May 2018 in Santa Rosa or at any other location), you do not need to retake the training.
