Did you know apple trees can be grown in the shape of a "V"? 🍏☀️🍎 . "Lodi Farming grows their apple trees in the shape of a "V" so they can get more sunlight. Why?? Because the amount of sun a tree gets affects the size, flavor AND sweetness of an apple!" Video credit: @western_growers . https://www.facebook.com/WesternGrowers/

SFGATE- "For the small six-person team tasked with combating California's nutria infestation, a typical day consists of working in 100-degree weather, wading through marshes and avoiding traps built to catch 20-pound rodents, targeting about 2 million acres. . Nutria, a destructive rat-like mammal, is currently burrowing into central California's wetlands. In the spring, the Department of Fish and Wildlife began to warn the public about the dangers of the animal, which devastate agricultural infrastructure by burrowing into levees, roadbeds and canal beds. . But in the past few months, only 200 nutria have been exterminated, 100 of which were found in a pond on a single private farm in central California. . As the agency prepares for an intensive survey of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, officials say they have no idea what the actual numbers of nutria will look like. In April, there were two confirmed sightings of nutria just outside the delta, a region critical to California's waterways. . "We can't guess, we have no idea what we're going to find in there," California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman Peter Tira told SFGATE. "We need to survey and see to what extent they're in there, we haven't determined a complete range of nutria in the region." . "Our goal is to keep the nutria out of the delta as much as possible," Tira said. "That's the epicenter of our water control and flood control in California." . The Department of Fish and Wildlife isn't expected to get people on the ground in the delta until later this month, since they are still in the process of getting permission from farmers and other landowners to access private property. Most of the land in the delta is private. . Since it's difficult to get access to private land across California, the Department of Fish and Wildlife is unable to fully estimate the severity of the infestation. In other words, there's a very good chance that the state's infestation could be worse than previously imagined." .

All of us at Big W Sales would like to thank the Stockton Fire Department for their quick response to the pallet company fire next to our manufacturing facility last week. The fire burned a brand new ball trailer and several axles that we store in this area. Five fire trucks and countless fireman prevented the fire from having a devastating impact on our operations. 🚒🚒🚒

Great to see kids getting a hands-on experience 🤠👫🍉 FRESNO, California - Fresno State has one of the top ag schools in the country with its Jordan College of Agricultural Science and Technology as well as its research center. . The university is teaching young children how to appreciate the valley's number one industry. . On the farm your day starts early, there is a lot to do. These kids, most of them city dwellers are getting an up close look at the kinds of animals and crops raised and grown on farms in the Central Valley. . "Ag camp is about getting kids out on the farm, in the fields where the food is grown, out in the animals where we get milk, ice cream. They know the end product and we are about seeing where the product comes from," said Instructional Support Technician Calliope Correia. . Calliope Correia runs the week long camp with the help of Fresno State ag students and this is their classroom, Fresno State's 1,000 acre farm. . "We have this amazing farm in the middle of the city that a lot of people don't even know exist and so we are inviting the kids to come out and be a part of the farm. Visit it and walk it and see everything that we grow here." . For more...https://www.yourcentralvalley.com/news/education-matters-fresno-state-ag-camp-teaches-kids-about-farming/1327252689

Heat waves cause problems for farmers' crops and bottom lines ☀️☹️💧🥑🌡 . ESCONDIDO (KGTV): "Wave after wave of excessive heat is taking a toll on San Diego County farmers this summer. Not only are they losing crops, but they're spending thousands of dollars more on water use. "I was talking to a farmer earlier this morning, who wondered, 'Is this the new normal?'" says San Diego County Farm Bureau Executive Director Eric Larson. "This is their livelihood," he adds. "Farmers will do whatever it takes to protect their crop." . In many cases, that means more irrigation to keep trees and plants alive. Escondido Farmer Mike Hillebrecht says he usually waters once a week. But when the temperature gets above 95 degrees, he switches his schedule to water every 4-5 days. "That's all you can do, try to stay ahead with the irrigation," he says." . To see full video & article... https://www.10news.com/news/heat-waves-cause-problems-for-farmers-crops-and-bottom-lines

🍊☀️🍊FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- "Heat waves are common during the summer. The sun helps sweeten fruit, but at the same time, too much of it can damage oranges. . The white spots on oranges and leaves of trees are meant to protect the fruit from sunburn. Orchards at Fresno State were sprayed last month when the citrus started to develop. . Orchard Manager Rob Willmott explained, "You put it on when it's about the size of a nickel and as the fruit swells up, as it gets larger, that sunblock continues to expand with it protecting the fruit." . Willmott showed us how the sun can damage oranges. The fruit will be fine inside but consumers won't buy it because of the sunburn spot. He said, "So you can already see the yellow turn to brown and it will just keep getting darker and darker." . After harvest, cherry trees were also sprayed with sunblock. So were walnuts. . Willmott said of the spray, "it's kaolin clay which is a natural form of clay that is mined. it's an all-organic material." Willmott will keep a close eye on the citrus. If spots show up on too many fruits the trees will need a second application of sunblock. "You really see where you put it on and where you missed." . Crews were also keeping tabs on soil moisture to make sure plants and trees aren't too stressed." . http://abc30.com/weather/heat-wave-has-some-valley-farmers-concerned/3774044/

Farmers taking steps to protect workers in summer heat ☀️☀️☀️ . ABC30- "FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- This week's heat advisory served as a reminder those people who work outdoors need to be protected against heat illness. . The summer sun helps valley produce like bell peppers quickly mature. They're picked, packed and sent to stores. Farmers need the heat to grow a crop, but too much of it can cause concern. The warmup has many growers adjusting work schedules. . Fresno farmer Will Scott explained, "What we do is start early in the morning and then about 11:30 when it starts heating up we'll break and then come back in the evening when it's cooler." . Scott and his brother were busy preparing a field to plant more black-eyed peas. He said nights are still mild, so he's not worried about his tomatoes. "Even though it's getting warm but every now and then you get a breeze and it's heavenly." . The more significant concern was for the ag workforce toiling in the sun. Workers were reminded to drink cool water frequently, rest in the shade and watch for symptoms of heat stress. . State law requires that employers provide shade, water and a place to rest for those who work outdoors. . Manuel Cunha of the Nisei Farmers League said, "When it gets over 95 degrees you are to take breaks every two hours, a 10-minute break must be taken." But Cunha added workers can always take a break if they need rest or water." . For full video and article... http://abc30.com/weather/farmers-taking-steps-to-protect-workers-in-summer-heat/3634193/
