One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

Irrigation management efforts supported by the Arkansas Soybean Board allow farmers to attend irrigation school to learn the basics of irrigation, soil water holding capacity and how sensors work. The Irrigation Yield Contest allows them to test their knowledge and get feedback on water use efficiency. Development of an app that works with soil moisture sensors provides real-time knowledge to help Arkansas farmers make sound irrigation decisions. Combined, these efforts reduce inputs and runoff, while improving the use of water and soybean profitability.
