2011 AG Irrigation Seminar: Auditing Ag Drip/Microirrigation Systems

Presented by Charles Burt, California Polytechnic Institute, Irrigation Training and Research Center

Auditing Ag drip/microirrigation systems can be a complex process. One needs to measure how well the emission devices are performing and the implications on irrigation scheduling and yield. Included in the discussion are common problems found in microirrigation systems and their possible remedy.

2013 TL Irrigation Seminar: Water Movement in Soils and Its Implications for Landscape Drip Irrigation

Presented by Brent Mecham, CID, CLWM, CIC, CAIS, CLIA, CGIA, Irrigation Association

As drip and microirrigation systems are used more and more for irrigating landscapes, it is necessary to understand how water moves in the soil so that the emitter or microsprays can be placed appropriately to apply water that will encourage good root development.

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.

SDI-E (Subsurface Drip Irrigation for Dairy Effluent) - Maximizing Profit and Nutrient Utilization with Drip Irrigation Systems as a Nutrient Delivery Method

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
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. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.

Using the Indicator Plant Method to Calculate Drip Emitter Requirements

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
The typical landscape bed is designed with plants having different irrigation water requirement, yet they are all on one irrigation zone. This course will use the indicator plant method of selecting the flow and quantity of emitters per plant-water-use type to apply the required amount of water for each plant. This method can also be used for line source drip and even mixing different types of overhead irrigation. (Don't tell the irrigation police!)
