Water and Irrigation Systems for Market Farming

This presentation by Luke Freeman, from the Oklahoma Beginning Farmer and Rancher Program, discusses watering needs and approaches for small-scale horticultural crops. It opens with a summary of moisture-conserving techniques, and then covers water sources (surface, ground, or rural/city), pumping systems, filtration systems, and distribution systems (drip vs. sprinkler), as well as soil moisture monitoring and crop critical moisture periods.
