LEPA - LESA Trials in the Pacific Northwest

Thursday, 09 February 2017 09:16

Irrigation accounts for 80-90% of the consumptive use of water in the arid areas of the Pacific Northwest where water shortages are felt the keenest.  Center pivots and linear move irrigation systems account for well over half of the total irrigated acres in the Pacific Northwest, or 3.9 million irrigated acres (NASS Farm and Ranch Irrigation Survey, 2013).  Even small changes in the efficiency of these systems will have a huge impact on the total water conservation in the Pacific Northwest.
