In this series of webinars, scientists present timely information aimed at helping farmers and agricultural professionals interpret the results of recent research on dryland cereal systems in our region. This webinar series stems from the new book Advances in Dryland Farming in the Inland Pacific Northwest, a publication of the six-year Regional Approaches to Climate Change (REACCH; www.reacchpna.org) project, aimed at increasing the sustainability of dryland farming. All times listed are PST.
Webinars are free and no pre-registration is required. Each webinar will be 1 hour long, including Q & A session. Archived versions of these webinars will be posted when available. For more information and links to join the webinars (up to 30 minutes before start), visit the webinar series page.
