Declining aquifer focusing more attention on irrigation water savings

&lsquo;When do I start, when do I stop and what do I do if I get a rainfall event in the middle? As a team, our solution is use soil moisture sensors. There are other techniques out there, and I&rsquo;m not really concerned about them. We know these things work because we rolled them out in an extensive format, and we beat you in nearly every field we were in using soil moisture sensors and plant physiology.&rdquo;

If you had any doubts about how important irrigation has become in the Mississippi Delta, all you had to do was look around the room at the Mississippi Cooperative Extension Service’s Delta Ag Expo in Cleveland, Miss., on Jan. 23.
