Summary: This webinar will cover 15-year research data by a national consortium in collaboration with many forward-thinking farmers and demonstrate how to build a new water recycling system or modify an existing system to allow run-off capture and reuse for irrigation without recycling and spreading destructive plant pathogens. The economics and other benefits of building such a new system or modifying an existing system for the same purposes will also be discussed.
