Mark your calendar for Nov. 28, the date for the Desert Vegetable Crops Workshop at the Yuma Civic Center. The event is sponsored by the University of California, University of Arizona, and Western Farm Press.

Kurt Nolte, Yuma County area Extension agent, is chairman of the workshop and program coordinator. Registration will start at 7:30 a.m. and the program will conclude with lunch. This is always a good seminar for those in the vegetable industry to get updates on major production issues in desert agriculture. Last year’s conference was in Imperial County, Calif., and this year it rotates back to Yuma.
