Tri-Basin NRD Offers Soil Moisture Sensor Cost-Share
Nebraska Ag Connection - 02/09/2024

Tri-Basin Natural Resources District (Tri-Basin NRD) is now offering a Soil Moisture Sensor Cost-Share Program targeted at landowners in the Republican Basin section of the district. This initiative aims to enhance irrigation efficiency and contribute to sustainable water management practices.

Under this program, eligible landowners within the Republican Basin can receive 60 percent cost-share for the purchase or lease of soil moisture sensors for the upcoming 2024 crop year. The cost-share is limited to $2,500 per field, focusing solely on equipment costs and excluding data subscription services.

Application Deadline: Landowners are encouraged to apply promptly as the application period closes on April 1, 2024, or when allocated funds are exhausted, whichever comes first.

Approval Process: Each application requires approval from the NRD board of directors.

Reimbursement Process: Upon approval, landowners are required to pay the full upfront cost for the soil moisture sensor equipment. An itemized invoice should then be submitted to the local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office for reimbursement.

Commitment Period: Participating landowners commit to installing soil moisture sensors and completing a water use survey for three years.
