Subsurface drip irrigation clinic set for next week

Nebraska farmers and others interested in subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) should head to South Central Research Farm in Clay Center next Tuesday (Aug. 18).

That's where the University of Nebraska's South Central Agricultural Laboratory is holding a "Nuts and Bolts" clinic on the subject.

The clinic runs from 10 am to 2 pm. Lunch is provided. (Call 402.762.3356 to pre-register.)

Dr. Suat Irmak is the featured speaker - and will cover considerations for adopting SDI, provide an opportunity to view the research farm's SDI systems and lead a panel discussion of farmer and researcher SDI experiences.

Over the last several years, Nebraska farmers have learned a a lot about water management and use -- and a lot of credit goes to what happens at the research farm and the efforts of those who work there. This is a great opportunity to learn more.
