Conserving Water through Technology

Conserving water is something we can all do. If it is turning the water off while brushing our teeth or not using water when we do not need to use the water. This is especially true in agricultural production. In the August 24th, 2021 edition of the Growing Georgia newsletter there is an article titled Cultivation & Conservation: Can Technology Help Conserve Water? where the author discusses how farmers in Southeast Georgia are using soil moisture sensors to better manage their water resources. Along with conserving water, they are also conserving fuel/electricity while producing a crop in a sustainable manner.
