2016 TL Irrigation Seminar: ET & Irrigation Management

Presented by Brent Mecham, CAIS, CIC, CID, CLIA, CLWM

ET information is often used to provide a reference for determining the amount of water that is applied to plants. This presentation looks at where weather stations are located compared to the site being managed, how ET is calculated, and then what to consider when modifying the reference ET to estimate landscape water requirements for different types of plants.

2016 TL Irrigation Seminar: Water Quality of Alternate Water Sources

Presented by Art Elmers, CIC, CID, CLIA

While water is wet, not all sources of water are fit for applying to plants. This seminar looks at water quality issues with various sources of alternate water sources and what needs to be considered to either treat the water or decide it can't be used before applying it to the landscape. This is valuable knowledge when considering the use of on-site alternate water sources for the irrigation system.

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.

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.

Greywater Options for All Jobs

Greywater is an option for all projects. It does not have to be 100% of the irrigation source, but each gallon used is one less to account for with potable water. This webinar will highlight different greywater irrigation strategies you can adopt for your business and conserve water in the process. We will go over the key elements, the plumbing source of the greywater and the diversion options. Then, we will discuss how to use the greywater in the landscape, from simple laundry to tree options to full shower to turf grass. Ask a few clients if they would like to use greywater within the landscape; 94% of all clients are saying yes.

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.

ITRC: Distribution Uniformity & Precipitation Rate

Intermediate | Landscape (1.5 CEUs)

Online course from the Irrigation Training & Research Center.

Two of the most important concepts in landscape irrigation are distribution uniformity and precipitation rate. DU refers to how evenly water is applied to a landscape. DU is used to measure the performance of an existing irrigation system and is determined through a catch can test. Precipitation rate identifies the rate at which irrigation water reaches the ground surface, and is affected by sprinkler flow rate and area of coverage. PR is an important value that is used in both system design and irrigation scheduling. This class does not qualify for TCEQ. This class does count for 1.5 New Jersey CECs/WC and 1.5 North Carolina CEs.

Power Quality & Pumps ... Is Your Power Killing Your Pumps?

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.

Pressure Regulation & Check Valves for Landscape Irrigation

This webinar discusses how pressure regulation and check valves help conserve water resources. Pressure regulation can be achieved in several different ways: at the point of connection, at the valve or at the sprinkler head. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Check valves help prevent low-head drainage that empties lateral pipes unnecessarily and likewise can conserve water used in the landscape.

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.

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!)
