LACES and ISA Credit Hours approved. Clean fresh water is one of our most valuable resources and, arguably, the most wasted. Over 325 billion gallons of fresh water is used daily in the United States and the largest portion of that, one third, is for irrigation. It is critical to employ both time proven methods and new technologies to maximize delivery-efficiency and conservation of this resource. Participants will learn how cisterns work, irrigation sensor concepts, water monitoring methods, and how to combine these with water delivery control technology to provide the necessary water for healthy plant growth while minimizing excessive leaching and wasteful runoff situations.
