Technical Assistance Programs for Agricultural Irrigation Improvements in Arizona
A number of organizations offer technical assistance programs for improvements to agricultural irrigation systems. Irrigation improvements can lead to more efficient and precise application of water. As a result, growers have more flexibility to respond to temperature extremes, water scarcity or market fluctuations.
This guide provides an overview of the different types of technical assistance programs available to growers in Arizona to improve irrigation efficiency or water conservation on farm.
