ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia farmers have a new tool to help them better manage their water resources.
A computer with high speed Internet service has been set up at extension offices in Terrell, Seminole, Miller, and Calhoun Counties for farmers to use. On it is a program called the Farmer Portal, which can help Georgia farmers keep track of how much water they're using to irrigate their fields. The program hopes to better manage their water usage and promote conservation efforts.
"Farmers need to get ahead of the curve when it comes to water. A lot of us take it for granted. I come from an Ag background and certainly we take it for granted, well there's just going to be water, we better irrigate, no problem, that may not be the case in 10, 20, 30 years," said Mark Masters, Flint River Water Planning and Policy Center President.
The Flint River Water Planning and Policy Center will also have access to the information that will help them with future projects. Farmers can access the program from home as well at www.gafarmerportal.org
