UPDATE - December 1995
May 1996 Conference on Managing Irrigation-Induced Erosion and Infiltration with Polyacrylamide
Anyone interested in PAM as a conservation and production management tool are invited to attend the first comprehensive conference on the use of PAM in irrigation. The May 6-8, 1996 Conference titled "Managing Irrigation-Induced Erosion and Infiltration with Polyacrylamide" is scheduled to be held at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Fall. It is sponsored by the USDA Agricultural Research Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service, University of Idaho and the National Association of Conservation Districts.
The Conference will focus on PAM's potential to: reduce erosion, improve return flow water quality, prevent surface sealing that reduces infiltration, enable new irrigation water management strategies and protect groundwater quality. The program will include invited presentations, volunteer oral and poster presentations and tours of field sites. A proceedings will be available at the Conference.
