Efficient water usage will be the emphasis of a UNL Extension conference scheduled Sept. 1 at a new university facility in Brule.

The fifth annual Great Plains Conference on Improving Crop Water Productivity will be held at the West Central Water Resources Field Laboratory. There is no cost to attend the conference and a complimentary meal will be served.

Using water as efficiently as possible on the farm will be the focus of the conference, which is geared for agricultural producers, said Alan Corr, extension water educator.

The water resources field lab was purchased by UNL in 2007 to research, demonstrate and teach water conserving methods in cropping and livestock systems in western Nebraska. This year is the first growing season research has been conducted at the lab, which will be open for tours during the event.
