Food-Energy-Water study in central High Plains asks for producers' input

Looking for ways to expand your farm or community’s revenue base? To help sustain farms and communities in western Kansas and neighboring states in the Central Arkansas River Basin, a Food-Energy-Water (FEWtures) study is underway to expand use of wind and solar energy to support agriculture. Researchers at the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, and elsewhere are evaluating technologies to use renewable energy for local scale treatment of poor-quality water and to produce ammonia. Ammonia can be used for fertilizer or to store energy for future use.

If you farm or ranch in or near the study, we’d appreciate your input and opinions. A map of study area and counties is listed below. The survey typically takes about 10 minutes to complete.
