Jan 13 Landscape Irrigation Workshop Learn how Georgia’s emerging seasonal rainfall patterns impact landscapes and about water management methods that promote soil and water conservation. Plants need water, but knowing where, when and how much to water is crucial to maintaining healthy landscapes. We will review common plant health issues caused by misplaced or poorly timed irrigation and will discuss how these issues can be avoided. This presentation is intended to guide landscape professionals and property owners in efficient practices of irrigation, describe water regulations, and introduce simple irrigation system components, including a functioning display model. *Pesticide Applicator Licensees Re-certification Credits available - Cat 24 (4 hrs) & Cat 10 (2 hrs) Georgia Certified Landscape Professional continuing education units - 4 credits Gainesville, GA - (85.0 Miles)

During the contest, participants judge both live specimens and market poultry, identify parts of birds already prepared for market, and evaluate eggs as to their quality and readiness for market. For at least one class, typically a live production class, participants are asked to justify their placing decisions through a set of oral reasons. https://georgia4h.org/programs/focus-areas/agriculture-stem/agriculture/livestock-and-animal-projects/judging-teams/poultry/ Calhoun, GA - (21.0 Miles)
