Crop health, agricultural water security and environmental footprint are three interconnected sustainability issues of national significance. This webinar series presents the latest research data that are crucial to address these complex issues. Specifically, this series will focus on irrigation pathogens and recycled water quality. Major topics include: why is capture and reuse of surface runoff important to secure an adequate supply of quality irrigation water while reducing nonpoint source pollution? How may this practice potentially impact water quality, recycle and spread destructive pathogens? What are the major steps and current technologies to address these problems and how to make the most out of water treatment dollars? How to design and build an irrigation system that recycles water but not pathogens? What are the other long-term solutions?
Time for all webinars will be 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm Eastern Time. Meeting space for all webinars will be https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/irrigation-water/. See the connection instructions below.
