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.

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.

This webinar will discuss electrical power quality as it relates to pumps and motors. We will explore potential power issues and how they affect pump performance and the life span of the pump motor. Learn the proper way to calculate the voltage and current asymmetry and the proper method to balance the available power on a three-phase installation. Participants will learn how to detect power anomalies and potentially how to correct them. In this presentation we will also cover motor protection devices that can provide a level of protection from these power issues. Finally, we will discuss how telemetry can be used to monitor power at an installation.

Electronic product available for immediate access. The recorded webinar will be available for 90 days after activation.
