HONDO -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service can’t create water, but on Jan. 31, the agency will be conducting a training to help growers deal with likely decreases in irrigation water.

Jason Ott, AgriLife Extension agent for Medina County, said the South Texas Irrigation Conference and Trade Show will be held Thursday, Jan. 31, at the Medina County Fair Hall in Hondo.

Registration before Jan. 25 is $20, and $30 thereafter, and will include a noon meal and educational materials, Ott said.

Program topics will include the voluntary irrigation suspension program option, or VISPO; groundwater district updates; status of cost share funds for growers through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program; Edwards Aquifer Authority voluntary irrigation suspension option; and economic considerations for irrigating. Other topics include making best use of limited water resources; strategies to increase water productivity in irrigation; selection and practical use of soil moisture sensors; maximizing irrigation water use efficiency throughout the growing season; and what’s new in irrigation technology.

Speakers will include Dr. Guy Fipps, AgriLife Extension agricultural engineer, College Station; Roland Ruiz, general manager, Edwards Aquifer Authority, San Antonio; Dr. Robert Schwartz, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Bushland; and Charles Stichler, retired AgriLife agronomist, Knippa.

Attendees holding a Texas Department of Agriculture private pesticide applicator’s license can earn three continuing education units, one in the general category, one in integrated pest management, and one in laws and regulations.

Conference program and trade show information can be found at the Irrigation Technology Program Website at http://itc.tamu.edu.
