    New irrigation research & tech helps farmers produce food and save water

    Matt Yost is a Utah State University professor in Plants, Soils & Climate and USU Extension specialist. He knows farming first-hand. He grew up on a dairy farm in Burley Idaho.

    “My father still operates the farm, he milks about 200 cows and so I still get to go there with kids and still be involved with some aspects of the farm,” said Matt Yost.

    Yost will be discussing one of the biggest challenges in agriculture – water management – at the USU Research Landscape event Thursday afternoon at the O.C. Tanner headquarters in Salt Lake City.
