Completion of this program is based on criteria established by the American Heart Association. Pre-course requirements include review of manual and completion of ACLS pre-course online self-assessment test. Participants are asked to print their test score and bring it to class, along with their current Basic Life Support CPR card.

WEST POINT – As water availability and quality become a greater issue, it is important to stay up-to-date with the current technologies available and the benefits they provide to their owners.

The first session of Variable Rate Irrigation and Your Operation (AGRI 5300/19F & CRN #60451) will be Thursday, November 20, from 4-7 p.m. The second class (AGRI 5300/19F & CRN #60455) will be offered on Thursday, December 19, from 1-4 p.m. These classes will be held in the Donald E.

Northeast Precision Agriculture Trainer Lonny Mitchell will discuss the pros and cons of each variable rate irrigation, the strengths, the proper environment for each, the rate of payback to implement, and the actual cost of implementation for a producer’s situation.

Session One will cover the informational aspects of precision irrigation including types and return on investment. Session Two will prepare producers to find the costs and payback for their specific field(s). Session Three will put the class participant face-to-face with several variable rate irrigation venders to provide low-pressure, non-binding options and costs to implement variable rate irrigation in their field(s).

It is suggested that those interested should take all three sessions, but each session can be taken independently of one another.
