Central Nebraska Irrigation Project

Cargill and Nestle Purina are supporting an irrigation project that is being implemented by The Nature Conservancy and the Central Platte Natural Resource District. This project is focused on providing technology to Central Nebraska farmers that assists in their irrigation decision making. The project provides participants with a flowmeter to quantify water use, weather station to provide information on field conditions, pivot telemetry to increase control of the pivot, and moisture probes to understand dynamics of the crop and water in the soil profile. The program evaluates the benefits of these tools to both the producer and to local conservation needs.
