ICT International will be running 8 workshops throughout 2018. These can be in any country at any date.
Should you have an interest in either organising or attending a workshop, please register your interest below.
Should you have an interest in organising a workshop at your location, please indicate on the registration form and contact ICT International directly. firstname.lastname@example.org
These workshops will cover plant soil water relationships. The workshop can be either of a general nature, or very specific to ICT Instrumentation in a field application.
The agendas below indicate some typical workshop content, these can be tailored to suit the specific interest of your group if these agendas are not suitable.
Frank Rinn, inventor of the RESISTOGRAPH® and ARBOTOM® and internationally renowned tree inspection instructor, will be conducting a series of workshops in Australia from Monday the 29th of January to the 9th of February, 2018.
Topics: Tree biomechanics and the application of technologies for tree structure and stability assessment and tree water use.
Demonstrations: will include the R650-ED RESISTOGRAPH®, ARBOTOM®, RINNTECH® software and other advance tree inspection technologies.
Locations: Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane
Dates: 29 January to 9 February 2018
Cost: $550 (incl. GST)
ICT International will be conducting workshops globally throughout 2017 which will be focused on plant water use monitoring and the applications to either commercial crop production or pure research science.
The SFM1 Sap Flow Meter, HFD8 Multipoint Radial Profiling Sap Flow Meter, PSY1 Stem Psychrometer for measuring non-destructive plant water potential and ICT International wireless systems for Precision Agriculture & Horticulture will be discussed. The workshops will focus on the practical application with hands on training in installation, data collection & interpretation.
Subject to interest, there will be discussion of ROI (return on investment) for adoption of this technology in irrigation decision making & horticultural production. Commercial applications that will be discussed include: citrus, grapes, almonds, macadamia & nursery management. These will be case studies of actual outcomes of deployment in commercial production systems.
In depth training of SFM1, HFD8 & PSY1 methods in regard to scientific experimentation will be undertaken in the scientific workshops.
The workshops are targeted to research scientists or commercial producers. ICT can and does offer “in house” or “on-site” workshops for corporate agribusiness by arrangement.
