GREENWOOD, S.C. — If you are going to develop a management plan for your pond, you must first decide on some goals that are both suitable and realistic. These goals will be based on your preferences for certain species and sizes of fish, the efficiency of the pond, and your interest in and commitment to increasing that efficiency. If you would like to learn more about pond management and developing a pond productivity plan, join us on November 07, 2017 for a pond workshop. The Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service in Greenwood County will conduct a one day Pond Management Workshop. This program will be held on Tuesday, November 07, 2017 at the Greenwood County Farmers Market 100 Ginn Street, Greenwood, SC 29649 (this is the market building located behind former civic center). Our pond demo portion will be held the same day after lunch at an off site location. The program will begin 9:30 am and conclude around 3:30pm. Registration begins at 9:00 am and the workshop will start promptly after that.
The workshop will cover several important aspects of pond management. Topics to be covered include:
- Storm Water and Water
