For decades, irrigation has helped farmers produce higher yields of better quality using fewer resources. But at the end of its lifecycle, many irrigation plastics need to be recycled. Until recently, most recycled drip tapes, polytube and driplines were placed in landfills, shipped elsewhere or buried on farms. Farmers pay upwards of hundreds of dollars an acre for disposal in landfills, an increasingly unsustainable alternative. Clearly a better solution was needed.
Join us in Grand Island, Nebraska in booth #436 for the complete Toro Husker Harvest Days 2017 experience! Toro will be offering a variety of ways for growers to learn about subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) and how it can help them maintain or increase yields using less water, even during a drought.
We’ve got quite a line up planned for this year’s show. Visitors will have the chance to hear first-hand from irrigation industry veterans during one of our expert-led events throughout the show. All events are free and happening with Toro, Husker Harvest Days 2017.
Toro is pleased to announce the release of a tablet app for its popular drip irrigation design software, AquaFlow™, available for both Apple and Android tablet devices. The AquaFlow app is an innovative solution that greatly simplifies the drip irrigation design process and improves accessibility to otherwise complicated drip irrigation design information.
“The all-new AquaFlow app for tablets creates a more powerful and convenient user experience, as it’s fully integrated across all software platforms – from tablet to desktop,” says Inge Bisconer, technical marketing and sales manager for Toro. “Users can now seamlessly access designs created on-the-go in the field, including lateral, submain and flushing information, with their desktop devices later.”
During times of water scarcity, like California’s recent drought, it’s tempting to take on a binary view of the world. This was definitely the case with agriculture, which appeared to be at odds with everyone: farms vs. fish, farm vs. cities, farms vs. regulators. As a dominant water user in the state, they were easy targets.
But when one digs deeper, it’s obvious that many in the agricultural community want to move beyond this debate and do things differently. Yes growing food and fiber takes water, but there are plenty of farmers laser-focused on improving irrigation efficiency, maximizing multi-benefit solutions and striking a balance between growing crops and preserving the environment.
