An Innovative & Efficient Way to Collect PSI for Drip Audits

https://www.irrigation.org/~/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
Learn a fast, easy and efficient way to collect pounds per square inch while performing drip audits or assessments. The IA recommends collecting psi from three points within the drip system during a drip irrigation audit. The traditional way of using a sharpened pitot tube creates waste, is time-consuming and is not the most efficient method. With this DIY, easy-to-build drip psi testing tool, you can check your three psi areas within minutes and move on to the next zone without losing a drop of water. Perhaps you are not performing a drip audit, but the system has issues that you need to figure out. With this tool, you place the rubber tip up against the orifice of the drip emitter or emitter tubing outlet, and you can move from emitter to emitter with great ease without wasting any water or poking a single hole. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.

Efficient Irrigation to Produce Cannabinol From Hemp

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
Hemp (Cannabis sativa) grown for cannabinol (CBD) is a relatively new and rapidly expanding crop. The irrigation criteria requirements to maximize hemp bud yield and cannabinoid contents have not been established. In 2018 we observed hemp production yield losses in Oregon from both excessive and insufficient irrigation. In 2019 we evaluated four progressively drier irrigation onset criteria for drip-irrigated hemp with four replicates. Water use, plant heights, nutrient status, nutrient uptake and bud cannabinoid content were measured over time. Bud yield and cannabinoid content results at harvest were used to estimate water use efficiency for cannabinol production. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.

Irrigation Technology & The Future of Farming

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
In the middle of the 20th century, forward thinkers envisioned flying cars, a dream that hasn't happened yet. They seldom addressed what farming would look like years down the road. When considering the future of farming, you probably think about self-driving tractors, but you're thinking shouldn't stop there. Fully autonomous pivots and completely connected crop management are closer than you realize. The goal of agriculture - and especially irrigation - is to produce greater yields with fewer inputs. But what does that mean? For starters, it means less water, lower energy bills and decreased labor costs, not to mention an improved quality of life. As machines located in fields for decades, center pivots are uniquely positioned to become data hubs and drive a revolution in artificial intelligence and machine learning to take data from reactive to predictive.

It Works on Paper: Reconciling Site Hydraulics

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
The primary focus of an irrigation designer is to design a system able to match the water requirement of the plant material through maturity. Ultimately, the hydraulic requirements of this system must match the hydraulic profile of the site, and it is the designer's and installer's task to ensure that this occurs. Learn how to ascertain the hydraulic requirements of the system from the irrigation design and gain an understanding of how to calculate this for design-build situations. Take away a game-changing technique used to accurately measure landscapes of any shape so they may be verified against the design. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.

ITRC: Distribution Uniformity & Precipitation Rate

Intermediate | Landscape (1.5 CEUs)

Online course from the Irrigation Training & Research Center.

Two of the most important concepts in landscape irrigation are distribution uniformity and precipitation rate. DU refers to how evenly water is applied to a landscape. DU is used to measure the performance of an existing irrigation system and is determined through a catch can test. Precipitation rate identifies the rate at which irrigation water reaches the ground surface, and is affected by sprinkler flow rate and area of coverage. PR is an important value that is used in both system design and irrigation scheduling. This class does not qualify for TCEQ. This class does count for 1.5 New Jersey CECs/WC and 1.5 North Carolina CEs.

Managing Nebraska's Irrigation Water Use in the Cloud

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
The Twin Platte Natural Resources District manages the use of groundwater for irrigation of approximately 320,000 acres in central Nebraska. They have embarked on an ambitious water data project that will leverage multiple cloud-based platforms and a state-of-the-art data communication network, collecting data on water use and water levels and evaluating water use and water supply automatically. Water managers will automatically receive updates on the status of water supplies and water uses, allowing for real-time water management decisions that historically took years to make and implement. For the first time both the irrigators and water managers in the TPNRD will have their finger on the pulse of the aquifer, being able to continuously monitor and adjust based on current data and information, marking a true paradigm shift from reactive to proactive water management.

Methods and Materials for Restraining Pipes and Fittings

This webinar discusses the various options available for restraining irrigation pipe and their associated fittings, both above and below ground. Topics include thrust blocking and joint restraint as well as when restraint is required and when it is not. The various types of pipe and how their restraining requirements are different will be discussed. Details will be shown to illustrate how the types of restraint should be installed and calculations for proper sizing of the restraints. We will also discuss why restraint is needed and the consequences of improperly or not restraining the pipe and fitting system.

Microirrigation Issues & Common Treatment Programs

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
As many irrigation systems are being converted over to a microirrigation framework, and with the introduction of the Food Safety Modernization Act, farms are now seeing issues that have not surfaced in the past. This leads to potential losses in crop production/recalls of product from either pugging, biofilms and/or diseases. We will discuss how to mitigate or eliminate these potential issues revolving around microirrigation systems. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.
