Agricultural Energy Webinar Series, Dec 2012 through March 2013

Scott Sanford, Outreach Specialist – Rural Energy Program, University of Wisconsin

Delivery of irrigation water through farm irrigation systems from ground or surface water sources to the field requires the addition of energy. The amount of energy that must be added is affected by the type of irrigation delivery system, system pressure, elevation difference between the field and the water source, inches of water applied, and the land area being irrigated. This presentation will cover some of the things that can be done to an existing system to reduce energy costs.

This program is supported by: UW College of Agricultural & Life Sciences, North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education, UW Extension, Energy on Wisconsin, U.S. Department of Energy.
