Video: Conservation through Innovation

Here is a great video showing the use of smart irrigation to get “more crop per drop” in southwest Georgia. It features several of my colleagues and farmers in that region and shows how applying just enough irrigation water through monitoring of soil moisture and rainfall can greatly increase the yields of crops like cotton and peanuts. You can view it on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/343265169. The University of Georgia weather network is funded in part by check-offs from farmers who use our weather data to monitor their water needs carefully, and we try our best to provide current, accurate and consistent data.
