Sponsored: Water Management Study: NETAFIM Drip-Irrigation

Jonathan Perkins, Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® Location Lead & Agronomist in Southern Illinois, reviews the results of Beck’s 2016 Water Management Study on drip-irrigation.

This study was conducted to determine the yield differences between no drainage or irrigation and three other water management systems: 30 ft. tile drainage, 30 ft. tile drainage plus drip-irrigation, and drip-irrigation alone with no tile drainage. You can view the results of this study on page 244 here

Join Jonathan along with Jim Hunt, Netafim Irrigation Inc. Market Segment Leader, as they discuss the advantages of using the Netafim drip-irrigation system.
