Tool Helps Farmers With Irrigation Efficiency
A new University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension online spreadsheet will help irrigators evaluate their pumping plant efficiency. The new tool will help irrigators calculate the amount of money they could save by improving the efficiency of their system, said Tom Dorn, Lancaster County Extension educator, who developed the tool. The spreadsheet is available at http://lancaster.unl.edu/ag/crops/Long_Term_Pump.xls.
