Drought Management: How to Maximize Irrigation Efficiency

The days of limitless water are far behind us. In this podcast, Dr. Sebastian Braum joins Yara's Director of Agronomic Services, Dr. Rob Mikkelsen, to discuss irrigation management as the number one driver of crop growth and yield.

Dr. Braum talks about the improvement in the irrigation equipment being installed and that we now need to improve how we use this equipment. He also looks into his "crystal ball" of what farming might look like in 15-20 years.

Dr. Braum is the Director of Agronomy at Farm(x) and a soil scientist. He is experienced in nutrient management, irrigation and soil management.
