Irrigation principles and management? Yes please!

Fall 2014 heralds an exciting new era in irrigation graduate education at University of Florida with a hot-off-the-press course offered by Drs. Kati Migliaccio and Michael Dukes in the Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department.

This course will take advantage of the distance education (DE) format and thus be available to all UF graduate students - no matter the location!

Take a peek at one of the new technologies that we'll use in the course:

Additional examples of what you'll learn:

How to perform a hydrometer test (like the pros do it).

How to use a tensiometer to schedule irrigation.

How all the components work in an irrigation system.

How to fix leaks...not leeks.
