A course that covers the design, installation, maintenance, operation and evaluation of simple irrigation systems. This course focuses on irrigation systems for row crops (eg. vegetables & cut flowers) and orchards.
"Whilst sharing similarities with other irrigation courses, this highly functional and practical course also has a specific focus on the irrigation of crops. It will be of interest to anyone who grows, or who wishes to grow, crops whether on a large or small scale. All aspects of irrigation from system types and design to pumps and filters are discussed, in light of soil characteristics, drainage, and plant requirements." - Gavin Cole B.Sc., Psych.Cert., Cert.Garden Design, MACA.
