With the recent debate and attention on the subject of irrigation for the P.E.I. potato industry, the P.E.I. Institute of Agrologists chose Sustainable Water Footprint as the theme for their Atlantic Agrology Workshop.
The workshop will take place July 20 to 22 at the Stanley Bridge Resort. While the workshop is a professional development type of event for its members, any interested members of the public are invited to register and attend.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide educational and informative presentations around the subject of water and agricultural uses of water, including irrigation. Following the educational presentations, a two-hour panel discussion with questions and answers will close the event.
The presentations will provide information on groundwater, affect of nutrient losses on groundwater, the impacts of groundwater extraction, responsible fertilizer use, weather and climate, plant breeding for reduced inputs, irrigation (management, technology, issues and regulations), water quality management, and economic and future insights on agriculture.
The conference has limited seating and there are one-day passes available. Registrations will be taken up to the day of the event subject to available seating.
