This week the california department of food and agriculture released histiocytoma dog removal cost the much anticipated healthy soils program awards. Statewide, a grand total of $12.48 million will be supporting 217 projects that build soil histiocytoma dog removal cost health, increase soil organic matter, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions through agricultural land management practices. On a national scale, this funding represents the country’s largest investment in building healthy soils as a climate histiocytoma dog removal cost mitigation strategy. This is great news for farmers, ranchers, and the soils of california.
The program funds farmers and ranchers to implement practices such histiocytoma dog removal cost as cover crops, reduced tillage, mulch application, development of grazing management plans, compost application, and the establishment of windbreaks or hedgerows. The awards support both incentive projects and demonstration projects under histiocytoma dog removal cost the umbrella of the healthy soils program. CDFA selected 194 incentives projects to receive $8.7 million in funding across 45 counties and 23 demonstration histiocytoma dog removal cost projects to receive $3.8 million in funding across 16 counties.
So, what happened in ventura county? I am sure you are eagerly awaiting the local news! In our county, we have 1 demonstration project and 3 incentive projects that histiocytoma dog removal cost received funding. That is a huge increase from the previous round in histiocytoma dog removal cost which ventura county only received 1 incentive grant. See below for details on the projects funded for the histiocytoma dog removal cost county.
Senate bill 88 requires that all surface water right holders histiocytoma dog removal cost who have previously diverted or intend to divert more than histiocytoma dog removal cost 10 acre-feet per year (riparian and pre-1914 claims), or who are authorized to divert more than 10 acre-feet per year under a permit, license, or registration, to measure and report the water they divert. Detailed information on the regulatory requirements for measurement and reporting histiocytoma dog removal cost is available on the state water resources control board “reporting and measurement regulation” webpage.The legislation as written requires that for diversion (or storage) greater than or equal to 100 acre-feet annually that installation and certificationof measurement methods be approved histiocytoma dog removal cost by an engineer/contractor/professional. Diverters across CA were concerned about this requirement.
California cattlemen’s association heard from their membership and worked with assemblyman histiocytoma dog removal cost bigelow on a bill that would result in a self-certification option. Assembly bill 589 was passed and became law on january histiocytoma dog removal cost 1, 2018. This bill, until january 1, 2023, allows any diverter, as defined, who has completed this instructional course on measurement devices and histiocytoma dog removal cost methods administered by the university of california cooperative extension, including passage of a proficiency test, to be considered a qualified individual when installing and maintaining histiocytoma dog removal cost devices or implementing methods of measurement. The bill requires the university of california cooperative extension and histiocytoma dog removal cost the board to jointly develop the curriculum for the course histiocytoma dog removal cost and the proficiency test.
Plants lose water through their leaves and it’s called transpiration. People lose water off their skin and it’s called evaporation or sweating. When a plant stops losing water and when people cant histiocytoma dog removal cost produce enough sweat to cool off, both overheat. The weather influences that drive this water loss – water that needs to be replaced or the bodies begin histiocytoma dog removal cost to go into heat stress – are the amount of light (day length, cloud cover), relative humidity (it dries faster when air is dry and slower when histiocytoma dog removal cost humid – think desert versus florida), and windy (more wind, more drying). Temperature is important, but not as much as these other drivers. Think freeze-drying – a very successful process for removing water from food. Often humans respond more to temperature than these other factors histiocytoma dog removal cost and figure, when it’s cool. It’s not necessary to water their plants, themselves or their workers.
California law requires employers to identify and evaluate workplace hazards histiocytoma dog removal cost and take the steps necessary to address them. The risk of heat illness can be significantly reduced by histiocytoma dog removal cost consistently following just a few simple steps. Employers of outdoor workers at temporary work locations must be histiocytoma dog removal cost particularly alert and also plan for providing first aid and histiocytoma dog removal cost emergency medical services should they become necessary. All workers should be accounted for during and at the histiocytoma dog removal cost end of the work shift. Heat illness results from a combination of factors including environmental histiocytoma dog removal cost temperature and humidity, direct radiant heat from the sun or other sources, air speed, and workload. Personal factors, such as age, weight, level of fitness, medical condition, use of medications and alcohol, and acclimatization effect how well the body deals with excess histiocytoma dog removal cost heat.
1. Recognize the hazard. There is no absolute cut-off below which work in heat is not a risk. With heavy work at high relative humidity or if workers histiocytoma dog removal cost are wearing protective clothing, even work at 70of can present a risk. In the relative humidity levels often found in hot areas histiocytoma dog removal cost of california (20 to 40 percent) employers need to take some actions to effectively reduce heat histiocytoma dog removal cost illness risk when temperatures approach 80 F. At temperatures above 90 F, especially with heavy work, heat risk reduction needs to be a major concern.
2. Water. There must be an adequate supply of clean, cool, potable water. Employees who are working in the heat need to drink histiocytoma dog removal cost 3-4 glasses of water per hour, including at the start of the shift, in order to replace the water lost to sweat. For an eight-hour day this means employers must provide two or more histiocytoma dog removal cost gallons per person. Thirst is an unreliable indicator of dehydration. Employees often need ongoing encouragement to consume adequate fluids, especially when the workload or process does not encourage breaks.
• acclimatization. People need time for their bodies to adjust to working histiocytoma dog removal cost in heat. This “acclimatization” is particularly important for employees returning to work after (1) a prolonged absence, (2) recent illness, or (3) recently moving from a cool to a hot climate. For heavy work under very hot conditions, a period of 4 to 10 days of progressively increasing histiocytoma dog removal cost work time starting with about 2 hours work per day histiocytoma dog removal cost under the working conditions is recommended. For less severe conditions at least the first 2 or histiocytoma dog removal cost 3 days of work in the heat should be limited histiocytoma dog removal cost to 2 to 4 hours. Monitor employees closely for signs and symptoms of heat illness, particularly when they have not been working in heat for histiocytoma dog removal cost the last few days, and when a heat wave occurs.
• prompt medical attention. Recognizing the symptoms of heat illness and providing an effective histiocytoma dog removal cost response requires promptly acting on early warning signs. Common early symptoms and signs of heat illness include headache, muscle cramps, and unusual fatigue. However, progression to more serious illness can be rapid and can histiocytoma dog removal cost include unusual behavior, nausea/vomiting, weakness, rapid pulse excessive sweating or hot dry skin, seizures, and fainting or loss of consciousness. Any of these symptoms require immediate attention.
