Virtual Training: Climate and Weather Resources to Support Water Decisions
In Day 3 of this five-day training series, speakers will focus on the state's climactic data and its influences on water decisions and issues. Changing environments present additional challenges in sustaining water quality and quantity, which makes data accessibility critical to help agriculture agents provide the best decision support to their clients. Speakers will examine some data sources and how they can be used. In addition, this presentation will provide information on weather resources and how to utilize them in an operational scenario as well as details about applications to support water decision management.
This workshop series will provide overviews on a variety of key issues related to managing water resources using irrigation and other technologies. Using an online format, experts will provide a live, 30-40 minute presentation followed by a discussion forum. Participants will be able to ask questions and follow up with both presenters and panelists. At the end of the training, participants will be able to access a digital package that includes the slides, extension publications, and other materials relevant to each topic.
These series are offered as Professional Development Event by the Natural Resources PFT and the Kansas Center for Agricultural Resources and the Environment (KCARE).
Participants can access all trainings in this series on the KCARE Virtual Trainings web page.
