These days farmers and producers seem to either be getting too much rain or not enough, but waiting for the weather to change is just not an option when you are dealing with Alberta’s short growing season. Increasing a farm’s resiliency to drought and flood can make all the difference in an overly wet year….or an overly dry year for that matter. Proper water management can help improve a farm’s water supply security in times of flood and drought and make more efficient work of on-farm water resources. By implementing beneficial management practices, farmers and producers can protect their water resources to ensure smooth operations for generations to come.
