Cost share funding to install irrigation system monitoring equipment is available through the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service's Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). 

This equipment, typically used with a center pivot or subsurface drip irrigation system, allows monitoring data to be transmitted by telemetry to smart phones, tablets, or other handheld devices. This can help determine if irrigation systems are operating at peak efficiency which results in water and energy savings for producers. To apply for this funding, contact your local NRCS office

Producers who farm in the highlighted counties may qualify.
