How much & when? A training in irrigation management!

This week I gave a presentation on irrigation management at the Miami-Dade County Extension Office.

Part of a seven-week course on horticulture, the training I conducted was entitled Irrigation Management for Nursery and Landscape Industry.

Plug and play: I = ETcrop - P

There were approximately 34 participants from diverse backgrounds that included landscapers, homeowners and stakeholders from the ornamental nursery industry.

My presentation emphasized the importance of good irrigation management in order to achieve the objectives for which specific irrigation systems are designed.

water balance = inputs - outputs

The participants were particularly delighted to learn of the online tools that they could use to guide their irrigation management decisions.
