Uvalde to host Feb. 2 South Texas Irrigation Symposium
The Texas AgriLife Extension Service and Irrigation Technology Center will present the South Texas Irrigation Symposium 2011 and “Last Chance CEU Blowout” on Feb. 2 at Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde. The symposium will take place in the college’s Student Center Ballroom.
Continuing education units (CEU) will be available for Texas Department of Agriculture private applicator and commercial/non-commercial license-holders and certified crop advisors.
“Water is the single-most valuable natural resource for South Texas, and the irrigation symposium addresses the issues relating to groundwater use and the best practices and technology that can be used to conserve water resources while maximizing their effectiveness,” said Dr. Guy Fipps, AgriLife Extension agricultural engineer at Texas A&M University in College Station and symposium moderator.
Fipps said the symposium will be presented in two sessions, with the first session focused on improving production and reducing costs and the second focused on innovations in drip and center-pivot irrigation.
