COVER STORY

Field talk

Three farmers share how they work to keep their irrigation operations as efficient as possible.

Business owners generally operate with the same basic goals: maximize profits and minimize costs. Ag producers are no different, and those that use irrigation can also tack on the added responsibility of protecting critical natural resources. 

By taking steps to maximize the efficiency of their irrigation systems and utilize efficient practices, many growers have found that they not only see their input costs reduced but they’re also able to decrease the amount of irrigation water used to produce their crops.
