Tools and Rules: A Soil Moisture Monitoring WorkshopTraining Type(s): Development, Education
Date / Time: April 21, 2017 8:00 am
Join MSU Extension, the Montana Institute on Ecosystems, and the National Institute for Standards and Technology as we learn about tools for measuring soil moisture, brainstorm about needed technologies, and get questions answered by experts in law, policy, insurance, and science. Participants may apply for reimbursement for travel costs! Door prizes will be awarded (CoCoRaHS, mugs, and more).
Topic: What can producers do in the next couple of years to ensure that they can pass their operation on to the next generation? We will be discussing water availability and soil moisture at the farm level.
1) Train producers on some of the on farm tools;
2) Nuts and bolts of policy, plus question and answer with water lawyers, policy makers, and scientists;
3) Collect a better understanding of the next generation of tools/technology that producers would like to use.
