How can a Company or Group Participate?
The program is actively seeking partners to present the message of pumping efficiency to California agriculture. We can be part of one of your scheduled short courses or other events. We could invite you to be part of one of our scheduled seminars. The Program message can be presented in whole or in part, and over any time frame required - from one hour to two days (we prefer at least a two-hour time block).
In addition to the four main topics discussed previously, we can also present concentrated sessions on variable frequency drives, obtaining and interpreting a pump efficiency test, seasonal irrigation scheduling, and evaluation of irrigation system performance. Call us if there are specific topics that you are interested in.
