Water conservation saves money. That’s one of the reasons Oregon farmer Jeff McNerny installed a high-efficiency irrigation system.
But Jeff is also consciously conserving water for his downstream neighbors and protecting habitat for the fish in those streams. And the irrigation’s flow control feature ensures that every tree in Jeff’s orchard gets just the right amount of water.
Watch this short Grow and Tell video to learn how Jeff and his community are benefiting from efficient irrigation.
Grow and Tell is a new Farmers.gov video series in which farmers share their experiences using USDA programs and offer first-person advice to other farmers who are considering working with the USDA.
