Irrigation Technology & the Future of Farming

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.

Managing Nebraska’s Irrigation Water Use in the Cloud

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.

Soil-Plant-Air Continuum Online Class

Advanced | Agriculture and Landscape (4 CEUs)

Water is essential to life, and it continuously moves from the soil to the plant to the air and back to the soil in a system known as the soil-plant-air continuum or SPAC. This course shows how water moves in the hydrologic cycle, and is used by plants for transpiration and photosynthesis. Energy from the sun enables the plant to store energy for use by other living beings. Oxygen and carbon are also in a continuous cycle. This module shows how the systems all work together in a continuum essential to life.

Sustainability of Irrigated Agriculture in the Central Valle

The Central Valley of California is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world due to its fertile soils, Mediterranean climate and water distribution infrastructure, but long-term sustainability of irrigated agriculture in the Central Valley is threatened by several factors. A number of policies have been enacted to mitigate these factors and ensure conservation of natural resources and economic prosperity of the region. However, for growers to be compliant with the regulations while remaining profitable requires adoption of advanced management practices and technologies. Findings from case studies applying these technologies in various crops grown in the Central Valley will be presented. Overall, sustainability of irrigated agriculture in the Central Valley of California will depend on building partnerships between growers, coalitions, regulators and other stakeholders including environmental justice groups.

Testing Ag Performance Solutions in the Oklahoma Panhandle

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
The testing ag performance solutions (TAPS) project involves producers in research by applying their management decisions to replicated plots of irrigated corn. It allows producers to select the corn hybrid, population, pre-plant N rate, fertigation rates of N and irrigation water application. Commercial decision support tools such as soil moisture probes, plant growth sensors and aerial imagery are provided to participants to aid in their decision-making. This provides an opportunity for service providers to demonstrate their products in an interactive demonstration. The goal of the project is to maximize efficiency and profitability, instead of simply maximizing yield. The project allows producers an opportunity to try techniques to maximize efficiency without risking income on their own farms and an opportunity to compare the results of their management to others.This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.
