TAWC 2014 Field Walks
The TAWC will hold a series of Field Walks throughout the 2014 growing season to observe and discuss the crop progress and irrigation usage on several project fields. These walks will be a great time for producers to hear what others are doing to best manage their water and participate in question and answer conversation with other farmers and researchers.
Our First Field Walk will be held on Wednesday - June 11 beginning at 9:00am, 2.4 miles south of Lockney on HWY 378 at Eddie Teeter's farm, TAWC site 21. We will be looking at irrigation managment stratagies and crop progress of corn, cotton and grain sorghum and several brands of irrigation management technologies.
