Getting the most value from your irrigation water will be the focus of the Center Pivot Irrigation Management Short Course, a day-long class to be hosted by Nebraska Extension at four sites this February.

Topics will include:

  • sprinkler package selection,
  • soil water management, and
  • pumping plant performance.

Also, irrigation industry representatives will be available to discuss the latest in center pivot irrigation technology.

The day begins with check-in at 9 a.m. and speakers from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The program is free but participants are asked to pre-register so appropriate materials and lunch can be provided. To register, contact the host site.
