    WHAT:       "Pivot Irrigation: Wireless Networking and Remote Sensor

                As technology is becoming more affordable to both private and
                corporate farms, the use of telemetry technologies not only is
                creating value to businesses but being utilized in new ways.
                The latest telemetry trend is "wireless instrumentation" or
                the ability to control or monitor analog and digital signals
                without the constraints of wire. These signals may be used to
                communicate to and from the pivot to the farm to check
                moisture and temperature sensors, chemical soil samples, wind
                speed for the best time to water, and the actual pivot
                location and pump power usage. This capability, together with
                Internet access, allows the entire pivot system to be viewed
                anytime via a smart telephone. Steele will review how to
                efficiently and affordably track data for pivot irrigation
                farms, as well as weigh the pros and cons of newer versus
                traditional systems of operation.
