Irrigation Systems Training

Kentucky NRCS will benefit from the specialized training recently provided by members of the NRCS East and West National Technology Support Centers.

Kentucky NRCS staff gathered in Murray, Kentucky to learn from Hamid Farahani, East National Technology Support Center; and Clare Prestwick, West National Technology Support Center. The two specialists provided NRCS staff with a three-day, in-depth and well-organized Irrigation Training.

Topics included irrigation efficiency enhancements, new Center Pivot and Micro irrigation system, designs and evaluating Irrigation Water Management Plans submitted for review.

The training our staff received will be used to plan and design irrigation efficiency improvements for farmers.
