High Plains Irrigation Conference set for Jan. 17


The annual High Plains Irrigation Conference and Trade Show hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be held Jan. 17 in the Regency Room of the Amarillo Civic Center, 401 S. Buchanan St., Amarillo.

The program, hosted by AgriLife Extension and the Texas Agricultural Irrigation Association, addresses a wide variety of topics, said Nich Kenny, AgriLife Extension irrigation specialist. The registration fee will be $30, payable at the door only, and includes lunch.

"We have made some large advances recently in irrigation management," Kenny said. "Now producers are looking for the next steps to fine-tune their water-use efficiency. This program will feature many speakers who will introduce or expand upon some cutting-edge ideas."

Topics of this year's conference will be: natural gas generation unit; variable frequency drives; irrigation management tools; highly efficient natural gas engines; non-traditional influences such as insects, fungicides and fertilizers on crop water use; tillage and residue management; efficient irrigation systems and soil conditioners.

Five Irrigation Association certified irrigation designer and six certified crop advisor continuing education units--five soil and water and one crop management--will be offered for conference attendees, he said.

The trade show will include about 30 booths from the irrigation industry, area groundwater districts and educational institutions, Kenny said.

For more conference information or to register for the trade show, go to the Texas Agricultural Irrigation Association website, Questions about the program can be directed to Kenny at 806-677-5600 or Trade show questions should be directed to Kern Stutler at 806-786-5644.
