New video online - irrigation retrofit benefits!

I recently produced a short video for Miami-Dade Extension's Urban Conservation Unit.

The video briefly discusses the shortcomings of mechanical irrigation systems and how these issues can be addressed by switching to digital irrigation systems in general, and soil water sensor systems in particular. It features a sampling of the wonderful variety of irrigation systems we encounter in our work throughout Miami-Dade County.

The video is a short slideshow with narration originally produced for use on the FYN/UCU facebook page. However, despite conforming to size and length restrictions, it was rejected by the site. This version is full-HD.

Check it out!


  1. Hey Mike! Nice job... I need to update my research web site with links to all of your stuff. Let's talk sometime (if you look at it, it is really out of date). I would like to post some of our results... with updates on gallons of water saved every 6 months or so by the program.

  2. Sounds good. We should talk about layout so that data inserts and project text and video links complement each other. We may have some time to discuss this in late September! :)
