Texas Corn Producers and the Texas U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) -Natural Resources Conservation Service teamed up to produce informational videos on drip irrigation for the state’s producers, which were released on the Water Grows Jobs YouTube Channel.

According to a June 15 Texas Corn Producers press release, the videos answer many of the questions producers may have about drip irrigation systems, and highlight the water-conserving benefits the system can offer producers’ operations.

The new video series looks at utilizing drip irrigation while meeting the Natural Resources Conservation Service specifications and guidelines, answering some of the key questions farmers may have when considering the highly efficient irrigationsystem. The set of videos includes:

•Designing a drip irrigation system: A look at what considerations need to be made and the steps involved in implementing an effective drip irrigation system for an operation

•Managing and maintaining a drip system: A glance at the regular and long-term management and maintenance requirements of the system

•Field management for a drip system: Information about field considerations such as pests, conservation tillage, and other agronomic aspects.

This latest effort by The Texas Corn Producers and the Natural Resources Conservation Service is a part of the organizations’ continual efforts toward further encouraging water conservation within the agricultural industry. The groups initially launched the Water Grows Jobs campaign in January 2011, with videos highlighting the economic benefits and need for irrigated agriculture in Texas ( http://bit.ly/LIzAfM). This initial launch was then followed up with tracking a Parmer County farmer’s drip irrigation field as it weathered the 2011 drought, a series of videos released in January of this year ( http://bit.ly/LIzFjr).

To access the informational drip irrigation videos, visit www.WaterGrowsJobs.org.

For more information about drip irrigation and other efficient irrigation systems, contact the Natural Resources Conservation Service at your local USDA Service Center located off U.S. 181 in Floresville or call 830-393-4253.Texas Corn Producers and the Texas U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) -Natural Resources Conservation Service teamed up to produce informational videos on drip irrigation for the state’s producers, which were released on the Water Grows Jobs YouTube Channel.
