Water-efficient irrigation technologies: Florida, North Carolina, and Oklahoma extension programs

10:30 am ET to 12 pm ET; February 8, 2011

The webinar will focus on the extension programs to encourage the use of more efficient irrigation technologies. Rain sensors, soil and moisture irrigation controllers, and other smart water application technologies will be presented. Challenges faced by the extension personnel in promoting these technologies will be discussed, and the approaches to overcome these challenges will be presented. The presenters will also discuss water savings evaluation results achieved through implementation of “smart” irrigation technologies. The session will conclude with the question-and-answer session. Your participation is the key!
