Irrigation Water Management

Presenter: John Panuska, Ph.D., Natural Resources Ext. Specialist, University of Wisconsin
With the drought of 2012 behind us, it’s time to review irrigation water management and look at how we can better manage water use in the future to get high yields and high quality crops despite the weather.

This webinar will cover water needs of different crops, determining how much water your soil can hold, determining how much water plants use on a daily basis, when to irrigate and how much, and tools such as irrigation scheduling programs and soil moisture sensors to help automate record keeping and provide
feedback that plants have enough water.
