Friday, August 30, 2019
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
One of the keys to efficient irrigation practices is having a good understanding of how to schedule each irrigation application to meet the moisture requirements of the plant material. This webinar will step through the environmental, system design, and resource considerations associated with scheduling irrigation in both agricultural and landscape scenarios. Additionally, considerations will be reviewed for the practical use of technologies designed to help with determining irrigation schedules. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category. $25 member $40 nonmember
