Tuesday, October 06, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Multiple ongoing landscape irrigation projects have been conducted that explore multiple turfgrass and ground cover trials, all being irrigated autonomously using evapotranspiration-based and soil moisture sensor-based smart irrigation controllers. Tune in for the results of these projects being performed at the University of California Riverside Ag Experiment Station and the University of California ANR South Coast Research and Extension Center by Haghverdi research group. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.
