MSU Extension Beginning Farmer Webinar Series “Getting started with irrigation on small farms" Date: April 20, 2016

Presenters: Steve Miller and Lyndon Kelley, MSU Extension educator

This session will help you identify an appropriate irrigation system for your crops and what will be needed to build and operate it.  Irrigation is not right for every farm, two factors that limit irrigation for many are the availability of enough water and the economic returns for the investment. Overhead and drip irrigation basics will be included.  The session will focus on vegetable and fruit production, but will include valuable information for other crops as well.
