Despite recent snowstorms, irrigators in the North Platte Valley are still likely to be challenged by limited water supplies this growing season. A meeting scheduled for April 25 in Gering will provide them with information and resources.

“Managing with Limited Water,” sponsored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Panhandle Research and Extension Center and the North Platte Valley Water Association, will take place at the Gering Civic Center from 8 a.m. until noon.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and the first presentation starts at 8:30 a.m. There is no cost and the meeting is open to the public.

Topics and presenters include:

Update on water supply forecasts for irrigation projects, by Dennis Strauch, manager of Pathfinder Irrigation District; changes in groundwater allocation rules, by North Platte Natural Resources District General Manager Ron Cacek;

Explanation of deficit irrigation, by Gary Hergert, soils and fertility specialist, University of Nebraska-Lincoln;

Demonstration of the Water Optimizer, a UNL Extension spreadsheet that producers can use to help prioritize the best uses for limited water supplies, Gary Stone and Jessica Johnson, UNL Extension educators;

Panel discussion about irrigation district operations, representatives of Pathfinder Irrigation District, Gering-Fort Laramie Irrigation District, and Farmers Irrigation District; and
