Public outreach and extension efforts in horticulture encompass the range of commodity areas described on the research page. Extension is the packaging and dissemination of research results to interested clientele, ranging from the landscape conservation for the public at large to specialized groups such as fruit and vegetable farmers golf courses, and nursery crop producers. This extension page is intended to be a partial destination for information in the commodity and landscape water conservation areas. In particular, all the landscape water conservation programs are supported by the Center for Water Efficient Landscaping.

Irrigation System Maintenance
By: Kelly Kopp, Extension Water Conservation and Turfgrass Specialist and Jennie Hoover, Water Conservation Specialist, Center for Water Efficient Landscaping
Irrigation system maintenance is necessary to ensure the most efficient use of water. Efficient irrigation is important since over two-thirds of the total water used in the average Utah home is applied to the landscape. With the natural drought cycles that occur in Utah and the growing population, efficient water use is critical. These maintenance recommendations are designed to help with irrigation system evaluation.
