(San Diego, United States – April 2017) Rivulis Irrigation announces the winner of the “I Love Farming” contest, held at the Word Ag Expo in Tulare, California, February 14 – 16, 2017. The winner is Laurie Kariya of Pauma Valley, CA.
As the winner, Kariya will be awarded $2,000 worth of Rivulis products. Kariya is a Sunkist grower and manages the citrus farm that has been part of her family since 1960. Her contest entry captured the enthusiasm, commitment, and love she has for farming:
“Who doesn’t want to be a farmer? I love getting to live out what many dream of doing. Growing fruit that feeds people all over the world and walking out to the grove to pick an orange to eat right here at home! While it can be stressful – pests, water issues, etc., I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Fresh air, beautiful scenery and being ‘mom’ to crops from planting to maturity. Love farming!”
