UNL will sponsor irrigation workshop Fairbury is one of five locations across Nebraska that will host a Uni- versity of Nebraska Cooperative Ex- tension irrigation management work- shop. The workshop will be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m Tuesday at the Jefferson County 4-H Building, Fair- bury. "This course is especially impor- tant because so many areas are experi- encing severe drought conditions," said Dean Yonts, NU irrigation engineer and course co-ordinator. "Producers need to be exposed to water manage- ment issues so they can possibly re- think the way they do things to im- prove for the future." The central theme of the course will be managing water during drought. Other topics include methods of soil water monitoring, how to improve water management with limited water supplies and a discussion on issues surrounding surface and ground water use in the state.
