January 21, 2016, Kemptville, Ont – Rebecca Shortt, OMAFRA water specialist, will be leading a drip irrigation workshop Feb. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Kemptville area.

Shortt will take growers through a step-by-step process to optimize farm irrigation water use. By the end of the workshop session, growers will know:

  • Farm water requirements
  • Plant water requirements
  • Preferred irrigation scheduling tools and techniques
  • And will leave the workshop knowing how long to run their system and how to schedule for cooler days and various crop growth stages.

Improving system management can save producers money and conserve water.
