Iowa Learning Farms will host a webinar Wednesday, June 19 at 12 p.m. about drainage water recycling.
Drainage water recycling is a conservation practice during which subsurface drainage water is captured for use as supplemental irrigation water in the summer. In addition to the irrigation benefit, drainage water recycling reduces nitrogen and phosphorus loss by reusing the water in the field. Chris Hay, Senior Environmental Scientist with the Iowa Soybean Association, will discuss current drainage water recycling research that is taking place as part of the multi-state “Transforming Drainage” project, modeling work in Iowa and field research projects that are beginning in Iowa.
A Certified Crop Adviser board-approved continuing education unit has been applied for and is pending CCA board approval. For those who are able to watch the live webinar, information for submitting your CCA/CPAg/CPSS/CPSC number to earn the (pending) credit will be provided at the end of the presentation.
