Abstract or Description:
A number of organizations offer technical assistance programs for improvements to agricultural irrigation systems. Irrigation improvements can lead to more efficient and precise application of water. As a result, growers have more flexibility to respond to temperature extremes, water scarcity, or market fluctuations. This guide provides an overview of the different types of technical assistance programs available to growers in Arizona to improve irrigation efficiency or water conservation on the farm. Definitions of the various funding types (for example: cost share, cooperative agreement, grants) are also provided. This guide describes the different types of technical assistance programs, the available funding, and the eligibility requirements (who can apply) for those programs to assist producers in identifying the best fit for their individual operation.
