Basic Soil, Plant, & Water Relationships


The Designer/Manager School is a comprehensive educational program offering a variety of classes designed for both agricultural and landscape irrigation professionals, taught by the very people who developed them - Charles M. Burt
(Ph.D., P.E., CID);
Stuart Styles
(http://D.Engr., P.E., CID);
Franklin Gaudi
(Ed.D., CID, CAIS), and
Dan Howes
(Ph.D., P.E.). The classes are held at the ITRC facilities at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo.

Our objective is to offer you an excellent opportunity to:

  • receive practical information on key irrigation design and management concepts.
  • increase your competitive edge by learning what is essential versus interesting.
  • work with state-of-the-art management software.
  • gain "hands-on" technical experience with exceptional indoor and outdoor facilities.
  • experience a comprehensive, intensive course structure that substantially improves technical expertise.

We will cover: Soil texture and structure, water holding capacity, retention, intake rates, evaporation, transpiration, soil classification, measurement of soil moisture and tension.
