No-Till Deficit Irrigation and Water Optimizer Workshop

Event Detail
Date: Wednesday, February 27th
Time: 8:30 am-12:00 pm
Description:

A series of No-Till Deficit Irrigation and Water Optimizer Workshops are planned in Sidney, Alliance and Scottsbluff in late February for ag producers who expect to have limited irrigation water supplies this year.
The workshops will address water-limiting issues and low-water-use crop options for producers facing these challenges. Other topics will include the benefits of no-till practices and annual forage utilization in producer operations with cattle. University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension personnel will also introduce and review the Water Optimizer decision management tool, which can help producers determine what crops to grow, how many acres to irrigate and what their potential profitability would be under limited water-supply situations.
The workshops are sponsored by the University of Nebraska Panhandle Research and Extension Center, the North Platte, South Platte, Upper Niobrara White natural resources districts, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund Continuous No-till Education. Please RSVP to Upper Niobrara White NRD or Box Butte County Extension.
