James Adkins Lecture

James Adkins came in for a guest lecture on different agricultural irrigation systems and water usage. There are many different types of irrigation systems used. There is 20% of farmland irrigated which makes up for 40% of local food supply. Mr. Adkins spoke highly of technology involved with irrigation systems and how big of an impact its been, he also brought up how drones are planned to be used for certain jobs in the future. Mr. Adkins brought a major fact up in his presentation that caught my eye which was that Asia is ranked with the biggest percentage of irrigated land in the world with 68% and America running with 17%. I would like to thank Mr. Adkins for coming to class and giving and amazing lecture.
