Governor Brownback congratulated the 2015 Water + Energy Progress Award Winners at the Capitol on March 11th. Producers from across the state were recognized as models of innovation for their water and energy saving practices, which included using cover crops, no-till, managed rotational grazing systems, solar pumping stations, subsurface drip irrigation, irrigation scheduling, wind turbines, local foods production, milk condensing systems, on-farm research, and collaboration.
