Grant Helps Farmers Use Smart Phones to Save Water

Don McMoran, director of WSU Skagit County Extension, and Troy Peters, associate professor with BSE at the WSU Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Prosser, are helping growers statewide use every drop of irrigation water to the fullest.

Using a $455,000 grant from the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service, their Water Irrigation System Efficiency, or WISE, project educates farmers and gives them smart tools to help the environment and their bottom line.
