2016 TL Irrigation Seminar: Auditing: Soil Moisture vs. Catch Cans

Presented by Brian Vinchesi, CIC, CID, CGIA, CLIA, CLIM, CLWM

Catch can audits measure sprinkler performance, while using a portable soil moisture sensor will measure the effectiveness of the irrigation. Both methods are valid and help correlate sprinkler performance with soil moisture uniformity that affects irrigation scheduling and ultimately the appearance of the turfgrass.

Don’t Lose Your Shirt by Growing in Dirt

Dirt and soil — what’s the difference? When we understand how soil and the microbes within it work, we can have soil work for us instead of against us. Healthy soil has better water retention and nutrient availability, and it grows more reliance in your plants. Save time and money in the long run by making healthy soil. Find out how the physical, chemical and biological functions of the soil work together and learn long-term solutions to soil health.

Fertigation/Chemigation for Agriculture and Landscape Irrigation

Fertigation or Chemigation is the application of fertilizer or chemicals through the irrigation system. The actual function of the technology, injecting products into irrigation systems, or injection for short provides the end user with expanded option for treating water, soil, and fertility needs. Injection is a technology used extensively by a broad array of industries for a variety of purposes. The primary goal of injection in the landscape and grower markets is to provide increased automation to a process resulting in better efficiency and simplicity.

Soil-Plant-Air Continuum Instructor Kit

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.

Sustainable Irrigation: An Integrated Approach

With the changing elements of agriculture and a growing population to feed, mechanized irrigation for water use efficiency and sustainability is becoming more important for global food production and grower economics. Many tools are available to determine soil, crop and environmental conditions, generating large amounts of data. A grower can be overwhelmed with how to manage this data, how to apply it to their situation, and the necessary tools to truly improve their water use efficiency and help insure sustainability. Mechanized irrigation has long been challenged by the industry to provide an integrated and strategic approach, combining rich available data with advanced mechanized control technology.

Water Conservation Approaches in Turfgrass Systems

Two different approaches of water conservation will be discussed during this webinar, based on information obtained from two separate research projects at Kansas State University. Project 1: Subsurface drip irrigation is increasingly popular because of its potential for conserving and uniformly distributing water. We investigated the effects of straw and poly-mesh germination blankets in combination with SSDI on germination and establishment of tall fescue turfgrass. Under ground covers, soil temperatures were 5-7 degrees higher and erosion during rainfall was reduced, resulting in uniform and faster germination of tall fescue compared with no ground covers. Project 2: Irrigation strategies typically rely on calendar or evapotranspiration schedules that completely ignore soil moisture. Our research approach is to integrate the components of the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum by utilizing sensor-based technology to determine turf canopy responses to soil water deficits and to improve irrigation decisions. Water savings of 70% have been achieved using this approach.
