There has been a 300% increase in irrigated areas from 1998 to 2018 in Maine. Recent extreme climatic events are driving Maine farmers to invest in expanding existing irrigation systems or installing new ones. Several factors impact the decision to select or install a new system.

Plan to join Dr. Sumon Datta via Zoom for a brief presentation on what small-scale farmers should consider before they expand or install a new irrigation system. There will be plenty of time for him to respond to questions about your situation.
