First US rice drip irrigation research project in CA leverages Israeli R&D


“We believe this initiative represents the first use of drip irrigation in the U. for a rice crop,” explains Kyriakos Tsakopoulos, president, principal and chief executive officer of Conaway Preservation Group, which owns the 17,000-acre Conaway Ranch. This effort could serve as a model for other farms and potentially save hundreds of thousands of acre feet of water in California if widely adopted.”
