Agricultural Engineer The continuing demand for ligher yields and la xmr efficiency in producing arops under irrigation has led o innovations and improve ments in both equipment and operating Some of these innovations are mechanical and may be applied wherever crops are Others may involve the ihysiological processes vhe ilant and their effects may rary from one climatic area to One recent innovation is the use of sprinkler irrigation for cooling the plant and its sur In Cali prnia and elsewhere this prac ice has been used to improve he yield and quality of Believing that some of the more sophisticated sprinkler ir igation systems in southern could be adapted for Cooling we at the Re earch Station at Lethbridge et out to learn what effects ooling might have on some rops grown commercially i n he For the past three years we have been cooling growing crops of potatoes and beans by low frequent sprink ling whenever the air tempera ture exceeded 80 degrees We have found that it is quite easy to maintain the tempera ture within the plant canopy below 80 degrees F even on days when maximum air temp eratures are in the mid Soil temperatures are also re duced by sprinkling but to a much lesser Humidity in the plant surroundings is in creased during the cooling water Our results to date have shown that cooling the crop en vironment by sprinkling has not led to increased yields nor has it produced any significanl improvement in The well irrigated but noncoolec plots yielded equaly The study cropcooling Is complex and involves many as pects of crop We shall continue our investiga but to date we eannol recommend crop cooling as a profitable 4H club news RAYMOND speak offs each delivered five The monthly meeting of the minute talks and a one minute in the RIGHT FIT
