MAGSA and Fresno State Launching Grower Irrigation Academy

The Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT) at California State University, Fresno and MAGSA are partnering to launch the first Grower Irrigation Academy, a program designed to support MAGSA farmers in implementing efficient irrigation and nutrition management practices. The Grower Irrigation Academy will provide growers with workshops, webinars, videos, field days, and interactive tools focused on:

→ Collecting and interpreting soil and water sensor data
→ Regulated deficit irrigation strategies and tools, tailored for the MAGSA area
→ Irrigation system maintenance
→ Soil field capacity, permanent wilting point, and other information about soil-water-plant-atmosphere relationships
→ Fertilizer recommendations that meet local guidelines 

The first Grower Irrigation Academy event will take place Spring 2024 and the program will continue through March 2026. Events will be made available in English, Punjabi, and Spanish. If you’d like to be notified about the first Grower Irrigation Academy event, fill out the interest form below:

The Grower Irrigation Academy is funded through a $499,609 grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture Water Efficiency Technical Assistance (WETA) program. The Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT) at California State University, Fresno, was the lead applicant and MAGSA was the partner applicant for the WETA grant.
