The rainfall simulator is ready and available for use. The simulator is
designed to run indoors or out and provide an audience with "seeing is
believing" information of soil water infiltration rates, and runoff on various
tillage systems. The simulator is capable of applying two to three inches
of rain on up to five different simulated land treatments, say no-till verses
conventional and has made a major impact on audiences yond and old. In the
last year, the simulator has been used at indoor conferences, outdoor classroom
events and various field days and demonstrations. A number of agronomist
and soil scientists have been trained to use the simulator, so there is a number
of potential presenters statewide. For more information about the
simulator, or to reserve it, please contact
