Hatcher Land & Cattle Water Tech Farm field day (Seward Cty, KS)

August 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

The Hatcher Water Technology Farm is owned and operated by Nick Hatcher. The farm is located 6 miles north of Liberal off Highway 83 in Seward County, Kansas.

The Water Technology Farm started with Nick’s enrollment into a Water Conservation Area and the goal of maintaining production while increasing water use efficiency and reducing wheel track issues. The two fields that make up the farm have had field mapping completed to identify management zones and locate where soil moisture probes were to be installed. One pivot is the site of water application comparisons with different nozzle packages. Another field has plant-​based sensors being used to manage plant stress. Aerial imagery is being collected to monitor the results and then evaluate the impacts of different water management strategies.

The field day starts at 2 p.m. CDT. For more information email kwo-​info@​kwo.​ks.​gov or call (785) 296-​3185.
