PFI Field Day: Using High Tunnels to Catch Rainwater for Irrigation

July 18, 2011 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Randy and Linda Naeve of Nature Road Farm host this field day focused on collecting and reusing rainwater from a newly constructed high tunnel. The water is stored in tanks and pumped through a drip-irrigation system to the rest of the one-and-a-quarter-acre farm. This system is based on a Leopold Center-funded project being conducted at the ISU Armstrong Research and Demonstation Farm.

Discussion Topics:
-Rain water catchment from a high tunnel
-Drip irrigation
-High tunnel production
-Deer fencing
-Community supported agriculture
