Description

In response to the Climate Change Consortium for Specialty Crops’ recommendations, SWEEP addresses climate change’s impacts to agriculture. With drier conditions and more severe droughts in the future, SWEEP offers funding for innovations on farms that improve the water and energy efficiency of on-farm irrigation. The program has funded projects focused on soil, plant and weather stations to assist farmers in scheduling irrigation, solar panel installation, and micro-irrigation (drip) system conversion. This CDFA web page provides reports from all SWEEP Projects funded and executed from 2018-2021.
