Texas Alliance for Water Conservation Water College set for Jan. 21 in Lubbock
Connecting today's producers and crop consultants with the latest in irrigation technology and research is the focus of the Texas Alliance for Water Conservation's first annual 'Water College' on Wednesday (Jan. 21) at Lubbock's Bayer Museum of Agriculture.
According to program officials, the event features presentations from experts in the industry discussing soil moisture probe technologies; soil and water relationships; grain sorghum, corn and cotton water and fertility issues; weed control in crop fields; and the latest in irrigation research.
"We've worked hard to put together a program well worth producers and crop consultants' time, and we are confident they will leave TAWC Water College with the water management knowledge they need to be well equipped going into this next growing season," said Rick Kellison, project director for TAWC.
Local irrigation supply companies, farm equipment dealers, farm credit businesses and commodity groups will have display booths and be available to answer questions and give details to all attendees. Sponsors for this event include: Bayer Crop Science, National Sorghum Checkoff, Cotton Inc., DuPont Pioneer, Eco-Drip, Texas Sorghum Producers, Texas Corn Producers, AgTexas Farm Credit, Plains Cotton Growers, Capital Farm Credit, Diversity D Irrigation Services, Zimmatic Irrigation Services, Lubbock Electric, Hurst Farm Supply, and Texas Tech University Agricultural & Applied Economics.
Registration for this event will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the program starting at 9:00 a.m. It is free of charge, CEU credit will be given and lunch will be provided. The program will conclude at 4:30 p.m.
The Texas Alliance for Water Conservation is a unique partnership of producers across eight Texas counties, data collection technologies, and collaborating partners that include: individual industries, universities, and government agencies. The TAWC project was made possible through a grant from the Texas Water Development Board.
