Irrigated agriculture is facing more regulations requiring operators to adopt better water management strategies and we have the expertise to help develop plans to meet those requirements and still maintain economic viability.
Fifty years of business experience and serving on advisory boards at the USDA Research center in Akron, CO, West Central Research and Extension in North Platte, NE and Irrigation Project Coordinator in the western half of Nebraska for the Nebraska Water Balance Alliance has given me the expertise needed to help irrigated agriculture better manage their water allocations.
