Description

Sustainable irrigation projects require management of irrigation water for profitable crop production without negatively altering the soil or depleting the source water resource. Water management topics discussed pertain to irrigation in the western Canadian prairie setting. Techniques of applying irrigation water to the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum to increase productivity and profitability are evaluated. Examples range from totally enclosed environments of greenhouses to the extra water in addition to natural precipitation of field crops. An appreciation is developed that irrigation projects increase regional growth and prosperity while operating within the bounds of societal control and regulation. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to organize sustainable irrigation projects, choose the irrigation equipment required and recommend how to operate it.
