During Husker Harvest Days this year, you'll have a hard time seeing the newest irrigation addition at the show site six miles west of Grand Island, Neb.

That's because it's underground.

A subsurface drip irrigation system is watering a corn field and part of the parking lot south of the exhibit area in 2013. It's the first time an SDI system has been installed at HHD.

Western Irrigation, based in Garden City, Kansas, installed the drip lines, feeder lines, drain lines, filtering system and control panel this spring. During the show, Western Irrigation's lot, Lot H, will be located at the site of the control panel and filtering systems.
