WEBINAR: The Importance of Water Quality Management for Drip Irrigation System Performance

Richard C. Bernier, Director of Sales and Marketing, Meras Engineering - Ag UnitOn Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 1PM (Pacific Time), the Grange Network will be hosting a 60-minute, FREE webinar to discuss how water quality – both chemical and physical aspects – affect design, equipment selection, operation, and maintenance of drip irrigation systems. If not managed properly, poor water quality can severely impact the uniformity and overall performance of drip irrigation systems, resulting in decreased crop yield and higher water, energy, and fertilizer costs. So don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the importance of water quality and how to get the most out of your drip irrigation system.

Watch the following Drip Irrigation Installation video to find out how Midwest growers are using subsurface drip irrigation to grow better crops with fewer inputs.  The investment often pays for itself in less than two years.

WEBINAR REVIEW: Making Drip Irrigation Pay

Last week, we blogged about a free webinar produced by the Grange Network called “Making Drip Pay” that discussed how to increase income, reduce costs, and improve flexibility with drip irrigation. Led by Inge Bisconer of Toro Micro-Irrigation, the webinar highlighted how growers have quickly paid for the investment. For example, Chris and Stephen Cox, a father son team in Kansas, paid for their $1,100 per acre system in 1.5 years by increasing corn yields by 100 bushels per acre, and by reducing costs by about $160 per acre. They also received $330/acre of EQIP cost share. Continue reading

VIDEO: Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) for Crop Production

The Wiregrass Research and Extension Center held a field demonstration near Headland, Alabama on August 29, 2012.  As presented by the Extension’s Agronomist/Regional Agent, Brandon Dillard, the above video presents their findings and the benefits of subsurface drip irrigation on corn.
