Learn what goes into preparing a Distribution Uniformity (DU) report and what things affect a DU score.

Intended for those who depend on, operate, or repair drip irrigation systems in vineyards. This special meeting will be held in Spanish and English.

Jacob Hernandez of JH Ag Consulting and Ben Burgoa of  the Resource Conservation District of Monterey County will walk attendees from the well to the end of the drip hose stopping along the way to demonstrate how to evaluate the performance of key points in the system. These are the same things that are done during a DU evaluation.
Jacob and Ben will talk about some common problems with irrigation systems and how to address them.
The goal of this meeting is to bring  together experts, boots-in-the-field irrigators, and vineyard managers to share their knowledge and experience with drip irrigation system maintenance and repair.
