Grain sorghum irrigation water-use efficiency dependent on weather conditions

Grain sorghum production is highly susceptible to changes in climatic conditions, more so than to different irrigation regiments a producer might implement on the crop, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research modeling study. The results of the study, “Simulation of efficient irrigation management strategies for grain sorghum production over different climate variability classes,” were recently published in Agricultural Systems journal.

OAP featured in txH2O

The Texas Water Resources Institute recently published the Fall 2018 issue of its magazine, txH2O, highlighting the range of research activities across the Ogallala Aquifer region, including the Ogallala Water Coordinated Agricultural Project and the Ogallala Aquifer Program.

Staff writers interviewed researchers from the Ogallala Water Coordinated Agricultural Project and the Ogallala Aquifer Program, two large research efforts supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Other articles include topics about 21st century irrigation tools, celebrating 40 years of low pressure center pivot irrigation and how researchers are helping farmers conserve water with field day events.
