Agriculture is the largest user of water not only in Nebraska, but around the globe. However, there are other stakeholders such as municipalities, recreation, wildlife, and business and industry that need a reliable supply of abundant, high quality water.
Encouraging collaboration among all water users—and positioning farmers as leaders in water stewardship—is the impetus behind Aquamart, an initiative of the Nebraska Water Balance Alliance.
Aquamart, supported in part by the Nebraska Corn Board, is a catalyst for farmer-led, field-level statewide water conservation. Aquamart leverages grassroots networking, precision technologies and best practices to create a blueprint for individual farmers to follow as they continually strive to improve their management of water.
