James Adkins Lecture on Irrigation

Mr. Adkins talked about irrigation on farms and a lot of the different methods. This was a really interesting lecture to me because it went in-depth into a lot of the engineering of different farms and the advantages and disadvantages of different systems. He talked about how a lot of these systems work and why they are prefered in different regions. I really enjoyed this topic because I didn’t know how many different options there were for irrigation. This topic always seemed to be an overlooked process to people that aren’t experienced farmers but it is actually probably the most important. Getting to learn how much engineering and thought has gone into getting water to farms in certain areas and how to effectively combat different weather conditions on a daily basis was a great lecture to listen to.
