Advanced Irrigation Controls and Applications

Course Number: WTM 241
Credits: 3
Hours per Quarter: 40

Lecture Hours:20    Lab Hours:20


Description
This course builds upon the previously-learned irrigation principles and electrical controls and then applies those concepts into a precision prescription for center pivot controls. Control system programming will be accomplished with real-time data from sensors in the field. Custom prescriptions will be developed for multiple cropping sequences under the pivot. The integration of field mapping, aerial photography and soil moisture content data will be used to develop custom prescriptions. Troubleshooting the programming and custom prescriptions will also be integrated into the instruction and lab components of this course. Prerequisite: WTM 112, EST 133 or instructor permission.
