Industry Training Day
IrrigationNZ is putting on two subsidised industry training days this September. One in the North Island and one in the South Island to ensure as wide of a reach as possible. These days have a focus on the term Good Farming Practice (GFP) and it is intended to give people from roles such as field staff, designers and managers a clear understanding of the technologies available and the irrigation industries role in helping their clients achieve GFP.
Welcome and H&S
Setting the scene: What is “GFP” and “Big Data”
The Importance of keeping water in the root zone
Soil Moisture Monitoring- What sensor, where, how many, and installation requirements
Big Data: on farm sensors and bringing that information together to make scheduling decisions.
Importance of system uniformity- good design and maintenance
Location: North Island: Taupo: Tuesday the 10th September
South Island: Lincoln: Friday 6th September
Cost: $99 per person, normally a training day for industry costs on average $500 per person
