This week’s featured video was produced by Alabama Extension to share the results of a successful project installing a variable rate center pivot irrigation system on a farm.  They used a combination of advanced soil mapping and soil moisture sensors to develop the map needed to program the equipment and to guide irrigation scheduling.  The farmer estimates the total system helped him reduce water usage by 60%, and also reduced variation of production in the field by eliminating both the excessive and inadequate irrigation that had occurred with his standard system in the past.
