Dan General, USDA-NRCS, Water


USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia invites producers across the state to take part in the upcoming statewide Water Management Workshop Series. University of Georgia (UGA) and Fort Valley State University (FVSU) extension programs have partnered with NRCS to host these workshops. While they are geared towards smaller acreage and new/beginning farmers, they are open to all who wish to attend and learn.  The workshops will explain the different types and efficiencies of impact sprinklers, drip irrigation systems, how to develop an Irrigation Water Management Plan, and hands-on activities assembling basic irrigation systems. And the workshops are free to attend.

There will be one workshop next month, April 3 at the Houston County Extension Office in Perry. Then three workshops are scheduled in May. They are May 7 at the Dougherty County Extension Office In AlbanyMay 13 at the Gordon County Extension Office in Calhoun and May 15 at the Cobb County Water Labin Marietta, GA.
