Our Work

From 2014-2016, BPA performed research to characterize the agricultural irrigation market. BPA performed this study to understand the impact that our program is having on the agriculture market and to identify the top opportunities to increase efficiency in the market.

Beginning in 2014, BPA began a comprehensive current practice baseline study of Scientific Irrigation Scheduling (SIS). This study monitored hundreds of fields in the Columbia Basin to assess the baseline water usage and compared that to the water usage of fields that utilize SIS.
