Event Registration - The Challenge to Meet California's Landscape Regulation Logo1.jpg
Wednesday, September 27, 2023
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
The future of horticulture requires a bold new perspective to remain sustainable in the face of climate change, consumer demand for beautiful landscaping and declining young talent in the industry. Prolonged periods of drought continue to put a strain on limited water resources. While the latest irrigation technology has the potential to improve water efficiency, there is still more to learn about how to best implement this technology into water-conserving landscapes. There is great potential for reducing water waste while creating beautiful landscapes. This webinar will discuss the work done through the SmartLandscape Initiative and how this hub for research, teaching, and outreach will help bridge the knowledge gap and make this vision a reality.
This webinar is worth 1 CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.
