Turfgrass Talk Show: Irrigation in the 21st Century 

January 27, 3-5 p.m.
Main Stage – North Concourse

A golf course irrigation system can be among the most advanced and technical irrigation systems on the planet.  Beyond the irrigation system itself, there’s also irrigation research that has led to best practices to promote health and reduce waste.  Join us for this quick-paced, interactive session that features various industry experts covering topics such as: the impact of irrigation timing/frequency, along with methods to monitor soil moisture, managing effluent water, and how can you sell that new system to your members.
