Basic Farm Irrigation System Design & Operation


Saturday, April 7, 2018 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Instructor: David Mostue, Dunbar Farm; Paul DeMaggio, Jackson Soil and Water Conservation District

Get ready for irrigation season! This class will look at a variety of irrigation systems suitable for a number of different crops. The class will be particularly useful for those planning to build or alter their irrigation systems as it will include a trip around Dunbar Farms to look at a wide variety of pump stations and irrigation methods in operation.

These systems will include overhead sprinklers for hay, drip irrigation in wine grapes, high uniformity rotator sprinklers for row crops, large volume canons for infrequent irrigation purposes and flood irrigation in hay.  Pumps and intake types, electrical demands, filtration methods, pipe sizing and field layout as well as the basic methods of installing irrigation infrastructure will be explained.  (Directions to the farm will be sent upon your submitted registration). Class size limited to 25.
