ROI of Improving Drip Irrigation System Distribution Uniform

This session will discuss the magnitude of drip irrigation in the United States and California and the importance of using distribution uniformity measurements to assess existing drip irrigation system performance. We'll discuss how DU is measured, the results of DU measurements taken to date in California and the potential implications of poor DU in terms of input costs, foregone yield/quality and environmental implications. Attendees will also learn about two efforts underway to improve poor on-farm drip irrigation system DU.

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.

Soil-Plant-Air Continuum Instructor Kit

(immediate download) 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.

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.

Testing Ag Performance Solutions in the Oklahoma Panhandle

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 Hidden Issues of Using Nonpotable Water Sources

Nonpotable water not only includes reclaimed or treated water but also stormwater, water from lakes and ponds, and even some wells because it is not suitable for drinking. In many parts of the country, state regulations require that the source for irrigation water be the lowest quality available to the site because of the increasing demands on the potable water supply. The use of these nonpotable sources comes with an increased number of complications that can be detrimental to the performance of the irrigation system if not identified. This webinar will help landscape and irrigation contractors recognize and deal with these potential obstacles.

TPNRD Water Data Program

The Twin Platte Natural Resources District manages groundwater resources in an area around North Platte, Nebraska. A collaborative effort that was irrigator initiated is changing the landscape of how to gather water data for use in more accurate groundwater assessment and management. TPRND partnered with GiSC, a grower-owned data cooperative, to build the TPNRD-Water Data Program based around smart water meters at every irrigation well. It is a large-scale collaborative effort with TPNRD, GiSC, electric providers in the district, Olsson Civil Engineering, Paige Wireless and irrigators to make this happen. It is an opportunity for irrigators to tell their story and for TPNRD to gather the most extensive set of real-time pumping data ever accumulated utilizing IoT devices.

Use of Satellite Imagery to Calibrate Crop Coefficient

Crop coefficients (Kc) are widely used for predicting crop evapotranspiration for irrigation management; however, the spatial and temporal variation of Kc for different crops can significantly affect ET estimation. Using satellite imagery to calibrate Kc has the potential to solve the issue due to cloud-based technologies and high-resolution satellite imagery being more cost-effective.

Using the Indicator Plant Method to Calculate Drip Emitter Requirements

The typical landscape bed is designed with plants having different irrigation water requirements, yet they are all on one irrigation zone. This webinar 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!)

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.
