ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Colorado Ag Water Alliance is looking for projects that will enhance drought resiliency and water conservation in ag. Successful projects will help test concepts and collect data that can demonstrate the ability to either reduce water use and/or increase long-term resilience to reduced water supplies. Current proposals range from $5,000 to $30,000. We do not have a match requirement, but having matching funds will make your project more competitive. We are not interested in funding general irrigation efficiency improvements.
What kind of projects are we looking for?
- Reduce losses with better irrigation timing and moisture sensors
- Drought-tolerant varieties
- Interseeding cover crops with corn
- Tillage practices and residue management to reduce evaporative losses
- Plant populations
- Distances between rows
- And more!
Deadline: December 1st
We strongly encourage you to reach out to us early so that we can work with interested parties to develop their ideas.
