FREE Irrigation Webinars by The Water Education Alliance

The Water Education Alliance for Horticulture is working with University of Florida Cooperative Extension, OFA, FNGLA, and the German grower association Zentralverband Gartenbau and several experts at universities and companies on topics to help growers conserve, recirculate, and treat irrigation water.

 

Announcements in your e-magazines or grower association newsletters would be much appreciated (if you can make repeated announcements as new webinars are coming up, even better J!).
