E4: A deep dive into water conservation

November 23, 2021

In this episode, we take a deep dive into the issue of water conservation.

We travel from Weiner, Arkansas to the central valley of California to find out how some of America’s farmers are rising to the challenge of climate change and extreme weather by implementing water efficiency measures on their land.

We speak to an Arkansas rice farmer who describes his approach to irrigation as a giant mathematical equation and hear from a California almond grower who says that the biggest dilemma she faces is how to harness the rain when it comes.

Tune in now to hear more about the intricacies of multi-inlet rice irrigation, the benefits of whole orchard recycling, and how groundwater banking could be the future.
