Are you an irrigator concerned about matching your irrigation with crop water use?
Are you wondering how to improve water use efficiency and reduce water costs?

The Minnesota Irrigator Program (MIP), is a great opportunity to learn more about the soil-plant-water relationship, irrigation scheduling for your soil and crops, how to incorporate nutrient management and irrigation best management practices (BMPs), how to select the right sprinkler packages for you, and special topics like variable rate irrigation and use of remote sensors in irrigation. This is a great opportunity to learn about the available tools for irrigators.

MIP is one of the requirements to attain the Irrigation Endorsement to the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program (MAWQCP). The MAWQCP is a great program to be recognized for the great stewardship you do on your farm.

Certified Education Credits will be offered for Certified Crop Advisers, so this is a great program for crop advisors and conservation staff as well.

Breakfast and lunch are provided. Cost for the 3-day program is $75.
