    the amount of water harvested (the supply) equals the amount of water needed for irrigation (the demand). Complex water harvesting systems use stored water to balance the supply-demand equation during limited rainfall periods. Complex rainwater harvesting systems cost more to build but yield greater water savings than do systems without storage. to supplement the geology and ground-water resources reports that will be published later. Most of the records were collected during and as a part of the investigation of the geology and ground-water resources of Barnes County, North Dakota; this study was made through the cooperation of the U.S. Geological Survey.

    Opportunities in Agriculture A low-energy, precision watering device irrigates an alfalfa field in Newberry Springs, Calif., part of a SARE grant project teaching farmers how to use soil moisture sensors to conserve water. – Photo by Ron Daines Smart Water Use on Your Farm or Ranch JP SARE 3/1/06 PM Page 3. Comparison of 14 irrigation events showed TSS, TP, TN, TKN, NO3⁻ NO2⁻, and NH4⁺ did not differ (Pillai's trace5,1 = , p > ) between surface water grab samples and irrigation water.

      Modern farming operations rely heavily on irrigation as a reliable water source in order to produce consistent yields. As groundwater reaches critical levels throughout the Arkansas Delta and farm management becomes more dependent on surface water, both water conservation and water quality issues need to be addressed. Findings in these studies will assist managers of farming operations in. During summer of , the wetland at the Van Wert County site was re-engineering into a single wetland/reservoir complex to provide greater water storage capacity. The designed wetland storage capacities at the other two sites were somewhat less than that needed to totally capture a 2 year, 24 hour magnitude rainfall event.

The Arkansas Conservation Partnership (ACP) is a unique force, combining the strengths of federal, state and local organizations along with educational institutions, to help preserve and protect The Natural State. The Partnership promotes a conservation ethic to enhance the ability of its members to serve rural and urban communities and strives to more effectively assist private landowners in.

Arkansas’s row crop producers are using innovative methods to ensure their crops receive the proper amount of moisture throughout the growing season. While cropland in the Arkansas delta is abundant, many years water can be scarce.
