Water is a vital component of rice farming and a precious resource. This episode explores the importance of water use efficiency and some of the many tools available to farmers. From alternate wetting and drying and row rice to multi-inlet and side inlet irrigation, drones, and flow meters – our guests cover it all. Arkansas rice farmer Scott Matthews and Mississippi State University researcher Dr. Drew Gholson join Lydia and Steve to talk all things water conservation. All that, Michael, Lesley, and more.
