Public webinar: Boosting Producer Learning, Exchange and Adoption of Water Use Efficient Technologies

November 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm MDT

OWCAP collaborators Jonathan Aguilar (KSU), Daran Rudnick (UNL) and Chuck West (TTU) will co-​present this webinar, presented by Climate Learning Network/​ANREP Community Science Initiative.

Webinar abstract: Producers in the Ogallala aquifer region are simultaneously facing serious challenges related to water and an explosion of new information available on efficient irrigation and crop management. In Kansas, Nebraska and Texas, popular outreach programs are helping producers make sense of it all, offering engaging opportunities that show producers new tools and techniques in action. These programs differ in their approach but share some common strengths such as producers sharing their experiences with their peers, research validation of management tools, and input from commercial and non-​profit technology experts. Drs. Aguilar, Rudnick and West will share details and insights learned from their involvement in Kansas’s Water Technology Farms, Nebraska’s Testing Ag Performance Solutions Program, and the Texas Alliance for Water Conservation demonstration project.
