This project examines the role of water management information and irrigation technologies in agricultural adaptation to climate variability and changes in the 17 western-most US states. Issues addressed include: (a) farmer demand for different sources of public and private water management information; (b) adoption of scientific methods and use of electronic media to schedule irrigation; and (c) how climate affects choice of irrigation technologies.
