Rainfall Simulator

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 Jeff Hemenway at (605)352-1239, or Jeff McGuire at (605) 352-1228.
