Flickner field day showcases innovations

Innovations on display, from autonomous drones to irrigation equipment trials at the Flickner Innovation Farm Field Day.

The Flickner Innovation Farm, Moundridge, Kan., hosted a field day Aug. 31.

The farm is a unique partnership that was created to evaluate irrigation and precision ag technologies, to help farmers find the best solutions to their individual needs. Kansas farmers attend to learn how they can conserve their irrigation water and the energy to pump that water, while at the same time improving soil health and water quality.

The Flickner farm works with industry and university partners and is supported by the Kansas Center for Agricultural Resources and the Environment (KCARE), housed at Kansas State University in Manhattan.
