CRCD and Ag Innovations are surveying growers around Santa Barbara County on agricultural water management practices. The survey is open until the end of the October 2016 and we encourage all agricultural producers to complete the survey. Your confidential participation will help bring water management technical support and funding to Santa Barbara County growers and qualified respondents will receive a $40 gift certificate for water efficiency supplies. (Please don’t complete the survey if you are not an agricultural operator in Santa Barbara County.)
We will be engaging the agricultural community and other allies throughout the fall and spring to better understand the kind of technical and financial support needed by the community to maintain farm viability and health through effective water management. We will ultimately be producing an action plan for Goleta and Carpinteria Valley as well as some recommendations at the county level.
