In the past, when water availability and costs were not as great of a concern as they are in today’s environment, superintendents could afford to rely more on ‘feel’. Now, real-time weather data, soil moisture sensors, and spectral sensing technology offer today’s superintendents with an array of resources and tools to more effectively manage water.

Attendees will learn:

  • Practical approaches for use of weather-, soil moisture -, and spectral-based technologies
  • Apply most informed agronomically sound irrigation management decisions
  • Successes and challenges using various water management tools, technologies and strategies from real-world golf course case studies
