Conduct an in-depth review of the Snake River watershed, which supports a key wheat growing region, and shared the detailed analysis with regional stakeholders in fiscal 2015. Now we are moving ahead with collaborative action. We are helping to fund a south-central and eastern Idaho project to quantify the effectiveness of water conservation practices, such as variable-rate irrigation, under different field conditions. Led by TNC, the program began conducting workshops in August 2015 to help farmers implement practices that reduce groundwater withdrawals in the upper and middle Snake regions and improve the sustainability of farming operations.
