July 26th & 27- Nutrition & Heat Stress Management (English/Spanish)

August 2nd & 3rd- New Technologies (English/Spanish)

This year we're doing things a little different. Instead of having one large field day, the Smart Orchard partners are splitting the days up and having designated Spanish days for each of those occasions. The first day (July 26/27th) will be lead out by WSU researchers Bernardita Sallato, Lav Khot, and Lee Kalcsits, focusing on nutrition, and heat stress management. The second day (August 2nd/3rd) will be revolved around "New Technologies" where innov8.ag will lead out, followed by discussions from Dynamax, Thingy,IOT, Aker Ag, Ceres Imaging, and Arable.


Not only will the companies that participated in the Smart Orchard Project be there but we're inviting guest companies to participate in the field days, giving you the opportunity to learn more and see what other emerging technologies are available to the ag community.
