This 12-part video series (filmed in 2020 and 2021) follows irrigation designers Andrew Bennett and Bruce Naka around farms in the Kootenay and Boundary regions of British Columbia. The series begins with a look at some of the major water issues facing BC farms, especially as climate change increases water demand and diminishes supply. We review BC’s main irrigation resources and tools, and clearly explain the main concepts to help farms tune up their irrigation systems and adjust schedules depending on the weather and on moisture in the soil, to get crops the right amount of water at the right time. The Kootenay & Boundary Farm Advisors (KBFA) were a partner in this series, the farm visits, and other resources produced by this project including “Irrigate Better“, a 4-part webinar series produced in 2021 and also available on KBFA’s and CCAP’s YouTube channels.
