Nebraska

Local irrigators, producers, farm managers, agronomists and bankers are invited to attend the 25th annual Southwest Nebraska Water Conference being held March 4 at the Red Willow County Fairgrounds Community Building in McCook. Registration will begin at 8:45 a.m. with the first session starting at 9:15 a.m.

A variety of speakers have been invited to present this year from the USGS, Bureau of Reclamation, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and more.

UNL, Southwest Weed Management Area, National Drought Mitigation Center and Middle Republican NRD professionals will talk about climate trends, water balance studies and irrigation strategies in drought conditions to better balance the use of groundwater with our prevailing climate.

Coffee and breakfast rolls will be provided by Ag Valley Coop and lunch will be provided by the Middle Republican NRD. Various exhibitors will be on hand promoting their products. Sponsors for this year's conference are UNL Extension in Red Willow County, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, University of Nebraska's West Central Research and Extension Center and the Middle Republican NRD.

The Southwest Nebraska Water Conference began in 1987 as a means to educate irrigators who had water quality problems. During the lawsuit with Kansas, the conference served to update people on the progress of the lawsuit. In the coming years, the conference aims to educate producers on integrated management, bringing to the table the combination of information and practical application suggestions that irrigators and professionals can implement in their businesses.

Contact the Middle Republican NRD at 800-873-5613 for more information.
