Left: ISO TC23/SC18 met in Montpellier, France in May.


ASABE has just announced that ANSI/ ASABE S629, Framework to Evaluate the Sustainability of Agricultural Production System has been finalize and available.


As the demand for using resources, includ- ing water, more widely grows, technology provides more field data and enhances a water manager’s ability to become a better steward.


While manufacturers are using technology to make better instruments for monitor- ing crop growth, they also increase the amount of data available that can influ- ence the decision making process. There is interest in both the U.S. and the rest of world, and can create many opportunities even in developing nations. ISO is very engaged in creating standards about how equipment and sensors can work together, including communications.


On the landscape side of things, only recently have there been any product standards developed and mostly in the testing and reporting of how a product performs. For years, the industry evolved without any formal written standard, but rather the marketplace determined what was acceptable. Now, there are standards and codes written that are striving to make landscapes and irrigation more sustainable, specifically to reduce or eliminate the use of potable water for irrigation and encour- age the development of alternate water sources to maintain the urban landscape.


The standards and codes that have been created and modified or updated every few years include a variety of entities includes codes setting organizations and local and state jurisdictions. IA continues to participate actively in the process so that our expertise can be used to achieve effi- cient irrigation and the wise use of water.
