U of MN Extension and Minnesota Irrigator Program Hosting Educational Field Day

The University of Minnesota Extension is hosting a field day at Anderson Farms in Belgrade, MN in conjunction with the Minnesota Irrigator Program on Thursday, July 28th, 2022.

Topics at the Anderson Farms Field Day include:

  • An update on variable rate irrigation research
  • Soil moisture sensors and the effect of soil texture on irrigation management
  • Sprinkler packages
  • Overall irrigation systems

The Minnesota Irrigator Program (MIP) is an educational program offered to farmers and certified crop advisors to learn more about irrigation systems, installing soil moisture sensors, irrigation scheduling, and new technologies in irrigation including variable rate irrigation and remote sensing.

The first MIP event was held in March of 2022 and it will be offered again this upcoming winter in case you missed it or want to continue to learn as these farm technologies evolve.

The event at Anderson Farms in Belgrade, MN is from 4-7 pm on July 28th, 2022 and is FREE to attend. Registration is required for the event. Register using this link (click here). Dinner is provided. We hope to see you there!

EarthScout will have a booth at the event with all of our products and information to take home.

We will also be presenting information on how to access your field data using the EarthScout app and to make precision irrigation scheduling decisions, and our field technician will also be giving an installation demonstration.

Anderson Farms is host to all EarthScout products that are currently available, and a few new developments that are scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2023. We hope to see you out there!
