An Innovative & Efficient Way to Collect PSI for Drip Audits

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. A psi reading is immediate and can help you quickly assess where issues are, without making a mess or wasting time.

Efficient Irrigation to Produce Cannabinol From Hemp

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.

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.

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.

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.
