GARDEN CITY, Kan. – Technology keeps evolving to help crop producers make every drop of water count in farm fields. To demonstrate the latest in crop irrigation technology, farmers in numerous counties are teaming with Kansas State University and the Kansas Water Office to present Water Technology Field Days in several locations in August.
