Worzella & Sons, Inc. of Plover is collaborating on a multi-year research project with the UW Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Department looking at newer, more accurate and advanced methods of measuring evapotranspiration (ET), the scientific term for crop water use. This project is being funded by the WPVGA’s Water Task Force and is led by Dr. Ankur Desai and involves the use of a flux tower system to measure ET in an irrigated vegetable field as well as using another flux tower system to measure ET in the adjacent Boston School Forest in Plover. Research results are shared with other potato growers to assist them in their irrigation management and scheduling regimes. Pictured here: Steve and Scott Worzella.
