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.

Greywater Options for All Jobs

Greywater is an option for all projects. It does not have to be 100% of the irrigation source, but each gallon used is one less to account for with potable water. This webinar will highlight different greywater irrigation strategies you can adopt for your business and conserve water in the process. We will go over the key elements, the plumbing source of the greywater and the diversion options. Then, we will discuss how to use the greywater in the landscape, from simple laundry to tree options to full shower to turf grass. Ask a few clients if they would like to use greywater within the landscape; 94% of all clients are saying yes.

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.

It Works on Paper: Reconciling Site Hydraulics

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.

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.

Multiple Methods of Irrigation Installation

Irrigation installation job sites are becoming more and more complex. Underground rights-of-way are congested with underground utilities, and yards are increasingly populated with potential landscape, hardscape or environmental hazards. One installation method that contractors are turning to is vacuum excavation. As a low impact and flexible option, vacuum excavators are becoming increasingly popular in urban job sites. When pairing vacuum excavation with traditional installation methods like trenching and excavating, contractors can take on more jobs and increase profitability. Vacuum excavation and traditional installation methods complement each other and should be mutually beneficial. Vacuum excavators are not there to replace trenchers and excavators but to supplement where traditional methods can’t go.

Retaining the Right People at the Right Time

Employee retention is not a one-size-fits-all program. You need to know what motivates each person to stay, their career goals and other key drivers in their career. Additionally, companies need to consider if they want to retain an individual. It might be time to let them go, even if they have been a great performer for years. Over her almost 20 years in human resources, Karen Weeks has worked with managers and leaders to help retain the right people at the right time. In this webinar, she will share her learnings and stories and provide actionable tips for the audience that they can use back at work the next day.

SDI-E — Maximizing Profit & Nutrient Utilization Including Dairy Effluent for Corn, Wheat and Alfalfa Production With Drip Irrigation Systems as a Nutrient Delivery Method

Adoption of drip systems, not only for irrigation but as a nutrient delivery tool, continues to demonstrate an attractive ROI across the United States. Row crop producers are finding that their ability to manage timing of nutrients and water awards the benefit of a significant increase to their bottom line. In the past four years, subsurface drip irrigation for effluent (SDI-E) has proven to be a more sustainable and profitable method for concentrated animal feeding operations to dispose of lagoon water and reduce commercial fertilizer costs. This webinar includes a panel of industry researchers and leading growers that are using SDI-E in their farming operations to increase yields, water and nutrient efficiency, and profitability, as well as create a more environmentally sustainable operation. They will discuss nutrient application strategies and irrigation management practices in detail and show how that results in an attractive ROI on drip systems.

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.
