Circle C Water Tech Farm field day (Scott Cty, KS)

August 30 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm CDT

The Circle C Water Technology Farm is owned and operated by Steve Compton. The farm is located 8 miles west of Healy, Kansas off Highway 4 at the intersection with N Taos Rd. Several technologies are used at Circle C, including EC soils mapping of all fields, soil moisture probes, variable rate irrigation, iWob and Bubbler nozzles, and aerial imagery.

The Water Technology Farm started with Steve’s enrollment into a Water Conservation Area and the goal of maintaining production while increasing water use efficiency. The three fields that make up the farm have had field mapping completed to identify management zones and locate where soil moisture proves were to be installed. The large pivot is the site of some water application comparisons with different nozzle packages and variable rate irrigation. Aerial imagery is being collected to monitor the results and then evaluate the impacts of different water management strategies.
