Virtual Training: Innovative Water Management Techniques
On Day 4 of this five-day training event, speakers will cover recent research that explores alternatives to identify the number and tentative location of soil moisture sensors in production fields. Presenters will discuss methods to conserve water while maintaining yield in a cost-effective and efficient manner, with some discussion on applying nutrients to maximize production economically while limiting environmental impact. Participants will also get a short overview of a project in the Rattlesnake Creek watershed to prevent erosion, floodwater and sediment damange in areas that include the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge.
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 using the virtual meeting link on the KCARE Virtual Trainings website.
