The Toro Co. will be exhibiting at Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Neb., offering a variety of ways for growers to learn about subsurface drip irrigation, and how it can help them maintain or increase yields using less water, even during a drought.

At Booth #436, Toro will be hosting a number of growers and dealers who will share their experiences firsthand, and give a free demonstration on designing a subsurface drip irrigation system using AquaFlow drip irrigation design software.

The report introduces the basic concepts and typical benefits of drip irrigation, including an example of a typical system layout.

The report concludes by highlighting the following tools and references that help growers and dealers plan, design, install, operate and maintain an SDI system: Drip-Micro Payback Wizard -- tool to estimate the ROI of converting to drip irrigation; AquaFlow -- drip irrigation design software; Drip Irrigation Owner's Manual -- comprehensive reference guide to drip irrigation.
