Colusa Farm Show • February 7, 8, 9, 2017 3

Now in its 52nd year, the Colusa Farm Show has become the most attended farm and equipment exposition in the north state. Known as the “Granddaddy” of agricultural shows, the Colusa Farm Show continues to follow the tradition of showcasing and networking the agriculture industry. Here at the Colusa County Fairgrounds, we are excited to host many experiences and information, and this year we have an impressive lineup of exhibitors, presentations and more. Seminar topics range from agriculture and heavy duty truck air conditioning classes to using drones for croplands. Other presentations include safety in agricultural practices and the food safety modernization act. Don’t forget to stop by and learn the importance of leaderships skills in running a family farm operation, or discover how power lines can threaten farming. We invite our guests to visit each of the 300 exhibitors and explore the opportunities, technology, and equipment available to you in the agriculture industry. It must be noted the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and the Farm Show Committee allow the Colusa Farm Show to continue this annual tradition of presenting the most cutting-edge farm equipment and technology to our visitors. Stop by and give us a browse; you’ll be glad you did. The Colusa Farm Show runs from 9 AM to 5 PM, Feb. 7–8, and from 9 AM to 4 PM, Feb. 9, at the Colusa County Fairgrounds 1303 10th Street in Colusa. Admission and parking are free.

arry Bedwell, president of the California Agricultural Leadership Foundation, will make a presentation opening day of the Colusa Farm Show, entitled “Importance of leadership skills in running a family farm operation,” Bedwell will explain the background of the foundation and its Ag Leadership program, which has successfully produced leaders to the benefit of California agriculture for almost 50 years. Bedwell was named president of the nonprofit organization in August, and is responsible for directing all foundation activities and guiding the leadership program to a half-century of excellence and beyond. Ag Leadership is considered to be one of the premier leadership development programs in

the United States. Since it was first delivered in 1970, 1,300 men and women have participated in the leadership program, and have become influential leaders and active volunteers in the agriculture industry and other areas. Area graduates include Leon Etchepare, Maxwell, of Emerald Farms; Stuart Hoetger, Chico, of The Stogan Group, Rick Rhody, Yuba City, of Sun Valley Rice; Jared Gross, Colusa, Wilbur-Ellis; Shannon Douglass, Orland, Douglass Ranch; and Kiran Toor, Yuba City, of Toor Farms. During the seminar, Bedwell will describe how the program “grows leaders who make a difference” by using a 17-month individually focused curriculum that teaches leadership development from the inside out. Bedwell’s one-hour presentation will be held at 1 p.m. in the Pacific Gold Ag Building, also known as Stagehands Theater.

A

griculture is an important part of the U.S. economy and culture, and now plays an important role in the generation of energy. For the past 10 years, North State Solar Energy has delivered the highest value to its customers using the very best solar components available, which enables farmers, homeowners and businesses to invest in renewable energy that supports their role of protecting the land, air and water. “Solar electricity creates a more sustainable future for our planet,” said Colusa office manager Hal Tacker. “North State Solar Energy takes sustainability a step further. We exclusively use American-made products to sustain a way of life. We help people reduce their overhead costs, so they can focus on what matters – a healthy community and thriving America.” North State Solar Energy is a local general contractor that specializes in solar-electric installations for residential, commercial and agriculture projects. Owned and operated by Michael Houar, a licensed contractor for over 30 years, the North State Solar Energy team has been involved with the design and installation of over 600 solar projects, including one of the world’s largest farm-based solar installations to power commercial rice drying and storage operations in Arbuckle.

The Colusa North State Solar Energy team (L-to-R) Matt Tacker, Dave Ingalls, Mark Heidrick and Hal Tacker, manager, are helping farmers, homeowners and business create a sustainable future by installing the very best American-made solar components available.

Powered by a 902kW solar array, Strain Ranches dries and stores more than 50,000 tons of medium Calrose rise during its annual two-month harvest - lowering overhead costs while contributing to the state’s $1.8 billion rice industry. With a business model focused on delivering long-term quality and value, North State Solar Energy offers solar and accessory components that combine high performance with unmatched warranties. Its exclusive use of North American technology, including microinverters from California-based Enphase, the world’s leading microinverter systems provider, along with solar panels

assembled in Oregon, makes North State Solar Energy a standout in the solar energy industry. Enphase microinverters harvest more power from solar panels, and are easier to install, monitor and maintain. “The microinverters’ ultra-reliable components make for a more resilient system,” Tacker said. And what’s better than American-made solar array components - with a 25-year warranty - is North State Solar Energy’s commitment to customer service. “We’re a local company with local people,” said Tacker, whose son Matt is a member of the Colusa team. “We are the best at what we do.” Last year, North State Solar completed roughly 90 projects with a total generating capacity of 3.25 megawatts of electricity. The company aims to top 4 megawatts this year. For more information, please visit www.northstatesolarenergy. com or give North State Solar Energy a call at (530) 342-7304.

Almonds

REIGN as top crop BY SUSAN MEEKER susan@colusacountynews.net

The world went nuts for almonds, and Northern California growers were happy to meet the demand. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, California-grown almonds have been so lucrative the past decade – more than double the value per ton - that local farmers have been more than eager to shake things up by investing in trees. In fields once dedicated for growing rice, especially in Colusa and Glenn counties, row upon row of nut-bearing trees made almonds the top commodity in those counties the past two years. “The displacement of rice as ‘King’ is likely permanent, especially as more trees reach maturity and begin producing,” said Glenn County Agricultural Commissioner Marcie Skelton. In 2013, the last year rice reigned as the top crop in Colusa County, almond production was second to rice by only two-tenths of 1 percent, according to then Agricultural Commissioner Joseph Damiano. Damiano too predicted that once rice lost its placement as the top crop, the displacement would likely be permanent. Almonds were harvested on more than 98,000 acres from Arbuckle to Orland in 2015, double the acreage in just 10 years, according to the most recent crop reports. In Colusa County, almonds harvested on 54,399 acres in 2015 grossed $418.6 million, up from $279 million on $51,809 acres the year before. Glenn County harvested 44,174 acres of almonds at a gross value of $214.9 million, up from $190.8 million on 40,4158 acres in 2014. In Butte County, almonds were second to walnuts at a gross value of $240.9 million. Butte County harvested 39,626 acres in 2015, but had 1,200 acres expected to reach fruit-bearing maturity by 2017. In California, where the state’s agricultural economy is comprised of more than 400 commodities, almond production is second only to dairy, the state’s leading commodity in gross cash receipts. In addition to acreage, almond prices rose steadily between 2009 and 2015, largely due to an increase in almonds consumption, up 220 percent since 2005, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, although prices dropped overall in 2016 as supply and demand began to level off. But regardless the price, the tasty almond isn’t going away anytime soon as health-minded consumers continue to drive demand. Last November, the Federal Drug Admin-

Water management topic of Farm Show breakfast

Located in Fesival Hall

Doreen “Dee Dee” D’Adamo will provide the keynote address at the 15th annual Colusa Farm Show Rabobank Breakfast. Several hundred people, including alumni of California State University, Chico College of Agriculture, are expected to attend the early-morning breakfast the second day of the Colusa Farm Show at St. Bernadette’s Hall, across the street from the Colusa County Fairgrounds in Colusa, where the threeday event is held. D’Adamo was appointed to the State Water Resources Control Board in 2013. She previously served on the California Air Resources Control Board under governors Jerry Brown, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gray Davis, and was a senior policy advisor for both U.S. Representative Jim Costa (D-Fresno)

and Dennis Cardoza (D-Merced). Breakfast committee chairman Heringer said the committee is pleased to have D’Adamo as the guest speaker. “In her role as a director on the State Water Resources Control Board, she is very involved in the Sustainable Groundwater Management Plan and minimum flow requirements for fish now being discussed on the San Joaquin River and Sacramento River systems,” Heringer said. “These are issues that are relevant and timely for our audience.” The annual Colusa Farm Show Rabobank Breakfast is hosted by CSU alumni, the California Agricultural Leadership Foundation and Alpha Gamma Rho. Proceeds from the breakfast support California Agricultural Leadership Foundation fellowships as well as Chico State Ag Alumni Scholarships and academic needs. The event has raised more than $300,000 for scholarships and leadership programs in its 15-year history. Also during breakfast, Vernon

Crowder, senior vice president and agricultural economist for Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory group, will provide his annual economic report. Crowder and his team analyze and conduct market research on California agribusiness as well as the North American fresh fruit and produce sectors.

Tulare’s World Ag Expo turns 50

J

ust five days after the 52nd annual Colusa Farm Show closes its gates, many of its showcased vendors, as well as visitors, will head to Tulare. This year, the World Ag Expo celebrates its 50th year. Originally named “Tulare’s Field and Row Crop Equipment Show,” in 1968, the exposition was modeled after Colusa’s Orchard Machinery Fair, after organizers attended the first show at the Colusa Fairgrounds in 1966. Both Colusa’s and Tulare’s farm and equipment shows underwent name changes after rapidly outgrowing their original branding, particularly when they opened their doors to other agricultural products,

vendors and international farm equipment manufacturers. The current name of the Tulare show, World Ag Expo, was adopted in 2001. Although the Colusa Farm Show - also known as the “granddaddy” of farm equipment shows - is the oldest agriculture-themed exposition of its kind in the western United States, the World Ag Expo is the largest; each year attracting more than 100,000 visitors and some 1,500 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square-feet of show grounds. The exposition includes agriculture tours and seminars. Special celebrations are also planned to celebrate the show’s

50th year. The World Ag Expo runs from 9 AM-5PM, Feb. 14 and 15; and from 9AM-4 PM on Feb. 16, at the International Agri-Center, 4500 S. Laspina

St., in Tulare. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www. worldagexpo.com.

New, At-Risk Farmers

A

ccording to the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, there are nearly six times as many farmers over 65 than under 35. It is more important than ever to invest and support the next generation of farmers. While any farmer has many challenges to face — including the rising cost of farm land, availability of training or technical assistance, and financing — farmers just starting out and socially disadvantaged farmers face these same challenges, but most often experience them to a greater extent. Socially disadvantaged farmers include farmers of color, military veterans and women. These groups historically have not participated in many federal programs due to inadequate outreach, lack of help and even discrimination, according to the FSA. Below is a brief overview of key federal programs focused on serving the underserved.

Microloans The FSA’s microloan program is specifically designed for young, small or socially disadvantaged farmers by offering a simplified loan process for their (typically) smaller credit needs. Since the program’s introduction in 2013, the FSA has funded more than 20,000 farmers across the nation with more than $470 million.

Whole Farm Revenue Protection Whole Farm Revenue Protection is an insurance policy designed to protect a farmer’s entire farm (including livestock) — not

just one crop. It is specifically designed for diversified farms that might not have access to crop insurance for each crop they grow.

Risk Management Education Program This program provides funding through four regional centers and one digital center to help farmers learn how to minimize risk on their farms. By minimizing risk, farmers can increase both the financial stability and future sustainability of their farms.

Down payment Loan Program This is a joint-financing loan program between the FSA and a commercial lender to enable the purchase of farm land. Only beginning or socially disadvantaged farmers are eligible for this program.

Land Contract Guarantee Program This program helps retiring farmers sell their farms to farmers who are just starting out by providing a federal guarantee in case buyers run into trouble making payments.

Individual Development Accounts This program is designed to help beginning and socially disadvantaged farmers finance their needs through agribusiness training, as well as matched savings accounts. In the matched savings account, the federal government (through local partners) will match any amount deposited by the farmer by 100 percent. For full details on any of these programs, visit www. fsa.usda.gov.

DRONES IN AGRICULTURE:

An Emerging Industry

Ag. Lifestyle Tent Sp. #1

Scott Gregory, a remote sensing specialist and FAA-certified operator for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), grew up flying remote control airplanes. He never thought he would be doing it for a living. “I wasn’t expecting to get into remote controlled anything,” Gregory said. Gregory, set to lead a seminar on the subject at the Colusa Farm Show at 9 AM on Tuesday, Feb. 7, is now working with Ag One Solutions, and is at the forefront of a emerging practice in the farming world: the use of drones in agriculture. “It’s expected to be a $2.9 billion industry by 2022,” Gregory said. “We’re just at the forefront of it.” Using drones, operators are able to detect diseases, irrigation issues, and other issues that can affect yield using infrared sensors that detect problems the human eye cannot see. The miniaturization and improvement of commercial off-the-shelf multispectral and thermal cameras in the past decade, coupled with their increasing affordability, have opened the door for drones to be equipped with such technology, and be meaningfully incorporated into the precision farming toolkit. “As it turns out, drones are really just the conveyance for carrying normal cameras, and

other more sophisticated sensors,” Gregory said. “It’s all about the data. It’s about the knowledge that you get from the imagery of the drone. It’s about the sensors they carry; it’s basically just a remote control aircraft, with a lot of potential.” While drones may just be a new method for getting those sensors and cameras in the air, they offer some unique advantages over the established alternatives: Satellites and manned aircraft. To start with, using drones is far more cost-effective than either alternative, making more regular data collection feasible. It also offers higher resolution images than those from satellites. On the job, Gregory uses a drone equipped with a camera, a number of sensors and a GPS-guided autopilot to cover hundreds of acres of cropland. He takes the images from the drone and constructs a variety of analytical maps, which convey precise GPS-based information. Those maps can then be used by farmers, agronomists, crop advisors or researchers. “Every element involves going out on ground and correlating the information with what you see on the ground. Drones are not the end-allbe-all; it just gives more information,” Gregory said.

PROTECT YOUR NUTS

In the case of growers, information gleaned from the maps can help them to make well-informed decisions that ultimately save money, increase efficiency, and provide a return on investment. The data gathered by the drone can be powerful, and Gregory said it’s already changing what farmers are doing. “Even without an infrared camera, you can see things from a different perspective that can be very helpful. A lot of people are not even aware of the imagery it can provide. That’s my job, helping people get a return on their investment.” Drones equipped for thermal-infrared imaging can be used to monitor the temperature of tree canopies in orchards. Those sporting near-infrared sensors can monitor the vigor of crops throughout the season to help with early detection of disease and crop stress, or detect and measure differences in nutrient levels in a field — such as nitrogen in rice fields — through yield mapping. All of that data can be used by variable rate technology, including sprayers and seeders, to apply materials where they are needed, and not where they aren’t. “The way it used to be done - applying something equally across the whole area - is a thing of the past.”
