WTM 241
Advanced Irrigation Controls and Applications


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 60

AA Discipline:

Lecture Hours:40    Lab Hours:20


Description
Use previously learned irrigation principles and then apply those concepts into a precision application. Mapping and precision agriculture software will be used to map and determine control points for precision water applications. Integration of real time data derived from on-site data loggers or weather stations will be used to determine variable rate applications. Prerequisite: ENT 151 or ENT 152.
