From the Ag Journal (Bette McFarren) via The Bent County Democrat:

On Jan. 14, Colorado State University received notice that the Arkansas Basin Roundtable has approved the application for $9,394 in basin funds for the Colorado State University Evapo-transpiration Data System Project. The project will enable posting of information from the Colorado Agricultural Meteorological Network weekly or daily not only on the internet but also in local newspapers, on local radio stations, and on handheld devices such as cell phones in the form of text messaging. A new age farmer will be able to get the latest soil moisture data while working in his/her field…

If CWCB approves the project, the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservation District and the Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservation District will contribute $10,000 and $6,000 respectively. Cabot plans to attend the March 2011 CWCB meeting to speak on behalf of the project.
