Partners video magazine releases segments on Rio Grande

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (USDA/CSREES) has released the latest edition of its Partners video magazine, titled "Fluid Planet."

"Fluid Planet" is a four-segment series featuring land-grant university researchers studying water conservation. The Texas Water Resources Institute's Rio Grande Basin Initiative (RGBI) is highlighted in two segments: "Big River Part I" and "Big River Part II."

Part I discusses the RGBI's focus on balancing demands for water and irrigation efficiency on farms and gardens. Part II details ways researchers in New Mexico are studying new and old irrigation systems using the Rio Grande, including state of the art drip lines and ancient acequia canals.

Partners is an award-winning video magazine produced by CSREES. It highlights the programs and accomplishments of the partnership between CSREES and the Land Grant University System in areas of research, education, and extension.
