Weather watching water system gives large water & fertilizer savings for growers

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/NE1000000214864/

Researchers at the University of Warwick have developed an irrigation system for growers that not only saves water and fertilizer it even automatically reads and responds to five day weather forecasts to decide whether it is going to water your plants or not.

Demonstrations of this new research will be presented at a special "Water Day" for commercial growers on 20th July at the University of Warwick's Wellesbourne campus.

During the G8 Summit President George Bush was overheard haling UK Prime MinsterTony Blair with the words "Yo, Blair" followed by his proposed solution to the Middle East crisis.

Professor Wyn Grant, a Professor of Politics and International Relations at the UK's University of Warwick, said the conversation suggested "that perhaps Blair doesn't have the kind of relationship with Bush that he would sometimes like to claim he has."

But he said the conversation only reflected reality. "The U.S.–UK relationship throughout the whole period since World War Two has always been an asymmetrical one. It's always been one in which the U.S. has been dominant."
