Crop Field

LOOKING Closer

Located next to Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary, this crop field utilizes pipe irrigation to grow soybeans and corn on a rotational basis. Pipe irrigation allows water from the Platte to enter through gates in the pipes controlled by the farmer, then uses gravity to move water from one end of the field to the other. Crop fields are usually planted by late April or May and harvested in October or November. This camera was retired after the two year corn-soybean rotation was captured.
