In 2004, information generated from a SSARE-funded research grant project (LS02-131), “Forage and Livestock Systems for Sustainable High Plains Agriculture,” was the basis in obtaining a $6.2 million grant from the Texas Water Development Board to test concepts of integrated systems in an on-farm demonstration project. The Texas Alliance for Water Conservation (TAWC) was born. For over a decade, producers across the Texas High Plains have been educating other producers on production methods and new technologies that help save water.
This bulletin provides information on the TAWC and some of the water conservation technologies that have been developed in the Texas High Plains.
