Workshop to focus on high-efficiency irrigation techniques


Texas

Hands-on training in proven strategies for maximizing ag water efficiency while minimizing cost will be held Jan. 24 at the Rio Grande Center for Ag Water Efficiency.

The Center is located just south of Harlingen, Texas, in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

The workshop--designed specifically for agricultural producers--is offered by the Texas Project for Ag Water Efficiency (Texas AWE), an initiative managed by the Harlingen Irrigation District with funding from the Texas Water Development Board.

"On-Farm Irrigation Advances" will cover low- or no-cost irrigation techniques and technologies to improve crop yields and boost net farm income. Topics include irrigation scheduling, basics of soil moisture management, using evapotranspiration networks, narrow border flood irrigation, and more.

A nominal $15 registration fee covers the costs of lunch and materials. To register, visit www.TexasAWE.org or call Heather Stock at 956-423-7015.

Texas AWE is a 10-year project focused on affordable and achievable methods for conserving water by integrating on-farm applications and district delivery systems. Project partners include HID, TWDB, Delta Lake Irrigation District, Texas A&M University--Kingsville Citrus Center, USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, Rio Farms, Inc., Texas AgriLife Extension Service and its FARM Assistance program, and numerous cooperating agricultural producers in Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy counties.
