UC Landscape Plant Irrigation Trials™
Spring 2019 Open House Ratings Days at South Coast Research & Extension Center
YOU ARE INVITED to evaluate our current trial plants on one of our Open House Ratings Days Tuesday or Wednesday morning, March 19 or 20.
This trials site is located at 7601 Irvine Blvd, Irvine, at UC ANR’s South Coast Research & Extension Center – event parking is free. A reminder email will be sent to you a week before the event. Participation will entail recording your quality ratings for one individual per treatment for each species/cultivar, providing you the opportunity to evaluate the performance of each species across all treatments without rating every plant in the field. The ratings take roughly 60-100 minutes to complete and participants may arrive any time between 8:00 and 11:00 am. The event is free, but space is limited, so you must register by filling out the survey located at: http://ucanr.edu/SpringRatingsSocal.
Important Details: Participants should wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, as the fields are packed dirt. You may also want to pack sunscreen and wear a hat, as the plants are in full sun. Carpooling is encouraged, but not required. You will be provided a ratings sheet, writing implement and given general instructions when you arrive. Cold water will be provided. We hope to see you there!
