Every irrigator can make excellent irrigation scheduling decisions by getting the right information and analyzing the data. Today it is easier they ever to install equipment the will automatically record and help analyze the data before sending it to your computer or smartphone.
Organizers of the Scottsbluff-Gering United Chamber of Commerce 2020 Water Tour and of the Nebraska Water Center’s (NWC) Water Conference, in consultation with public health experts, have postponed both events until 2021.
While conceived as a daylong event in Gering, the conference was moved online due to social distancing concerns. Conference presentations about water in the North Platte Valley of western Nebraska are now online.
