In early March, members of the Irrigation Association, including myself, arrived in DC for our annual Fly-In. The timing of the Fly In was perfect as we were able to discuss issues directly affecting growers and the positive changes our Farm Bill priorities could have on irrigation efficiency and grower productivity. After several days and meeting with over 30 congressional offices, we all were very pleased with the feedback, conversations and general interest Representatives had for our industry. I left thinking “WOW, WE WERE ACTUALLY HEARD”. Fast forward several weeks and boom… great news came from the House Ag Committee!
