Advances in On-Farm Water Management

Irrigated agriculture acreage in the northern Sacramento Valley has grown substantially over the past decade, with gains largely driven by new orchard plantings. Despite these substantial gains in irrigated agriculture (+73,000 ac or an 8% increase), actual water demand has remained relatively stable, increasingly only about 0.1 percent. Adoption of micro irrigation methods, as well as adoption of technologies and information to improve irrigation management are a big contributor towards higher efficiency. This video showcases many irrigation management technologies on-display at a walnut irrigation field day conducted in June 2018. Enjoy!
