Agricultural Water Conservation in the Lower Flint River Basin of Georgia

The Flint River Basin Partnership

Improving the efficiency of agricultural water use is a shared goal of farmers, researchers and conservationists. Since 2000, these groups have leveraged significant resources to develop and deploy new conservation based technologies in the Lower Flint River Basin of southwest Georgia. The goal is to move innovative agricultural water conservation practices from the research laboratory to the working farm so as to determine economic feasibility, field functionality and conservation impact. Projects are funded through contributions from farmers and cost–share programs. Farmers
in the Lower Flint River Basin of Georgia are employing five key water conservation measures, outlined in this document.
