Description: Irrigation scheduling is fundamental to efficient water use.  In this class, we will discuss soil-plant-water relationships to understand how soil texture determines how water moves through the soil and is made available to plants.  We will also talk about water use by plants and why this effects how we irrigate.  We will learn about precipitation rate, distribution uniformity, scheduling coefficient and how to use these to determine an efficient irrigation schedule.  Finally, we will discuss water conservation products that are currently on the market.

EDUCATIONAL SESSION: DOT Workshop 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm - Click to View Details

THIS SESSION HAS BEEN CANCELED. WE WILL ATTEMPT TO SCHEDULE AGAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

EDUCATIONAL SESSION: DOT WORKSHOP

PRICE: $35 per person (member or non-member)

Description: In February of 2015, New Jersey regulations under N.J.A.C. 13:60 were enacted to make state regulated vehicles comply with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Rules and Regulations (FMCSRs). This means that vehicles that previously only had to comply with FMCSRs when crossing state lines would have to do so even if they never leave New Jersey. Perhaps one of the biggest changes under this new regulation, is that vehicles with the gross weight at which compliance is required has changed from 26,000 lbs. to 10,000 lbs. Landscapers, construction and otherwise smaller companies utilizing trucks that used to be under a lot less regulatory scrutiny now must have the same as an interstate carrier. IANJ is working closely with the NJDOT and State Police to educate members on the new rules. This is a repeat seminar that was offered in March and June of this year.
