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.

2016 TL Irrigation Seminar: Auditing: Soil Moisture vs. Catch Cans

Presented by Brian Vinchesi, CIC, CID, CGIA, CLIA, CLIM, CLWM

Catch can audits measure sprinkler performance, while using a portable soil moisture sensor will measure the effectiveness of the irrigation. Both methods are valid and help correlate sprinkler performance with soil moisture uniformity that affects irrigation scheduling and ultimately the appearance of the turfgrass.

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.

Fertigation/Chemigation for Agriculture and Landscape Irrigation

Fertigation or Chemigation is the application of fertilizer or chemicals through the irrigation system. The actual function of the technology, injecting products into irrigation systems, or injection for short provides the end user with expanded option for treating water, soil, and fertility needs. Injection is a technology used extensively by a broad array of industries for a variety of purposes. The primary goal of injection in the landscape and grower markets is to provide increased automation to a process resulting in better efficiency and simplicity.

Precise Irrigation With Actionable Insights From Satellites

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
Farm-level satellite data has been available for decades, but it has often been in forms that are not easily translatable into actions a farmer must take on the farm. Usually, the data requires expert analysis and additional calibrations specific to local contexts for agronomical insights to be derived. This is changing fast due to the growing number of satellites imaging the earth with frequencies as high as daily and resolutions up to three feet. In addition, advancements in related fields, such as artificial intelligence, have made it possible to correlate the readings of satellites with measurable quantities on the farm level. These quantities are often resolved up to a few yards on a farm, and they range from soil moisture and nutrient levels to the prevalence of various pests and diseases. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.

Soil Moisture Measurement Using IoT

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
We believe irrigation management will be transformed by a revolution in soil moisture sensing technology. Tests are being conducted on golf courses, city parks and agricultural fields. The technology is low-cost and open source, allowing large numbers of IoT sensor nodes to be deployed across the landscape to quantify spatial variation. The webinar will address other important questions: how many sensors are needed, where to place them, do they need calibration, and how should sensor data be used to make everyday irrigation decisions. The webinar will include links to online resources that can help you get started with IoT sensors and improve your skills in this emerging area of irrigation technology. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.

Soil-Plant-Air Continuum Instructor Kit

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.

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.

Testing Ag Performance Solutions in the Oklahoma Panhandle

https://www.irrigation.org/images/Events/2020-Education-Week_Insights-LT1.jpg
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 project allows producers an opportunity to try techniques to maximize efficiency without risking income on their own farms and an opportunity to compare the results of their management to others.This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.
