Summary

​Technology is being developed to monitor the performance and provide growers the control to monitor irrigation pumping plants. As energy cost increase and water availability reduced due to climate variability and groundwater overdrafts, this technology may provide some real benefits and flexibility to growers. The presentation “Lessons Learned from Pump Monitoring in the Mid-south” discusses some recent pump monitor installations and what was learned from a select group of them during the 2011 and 2012 growing season.
