The Columbia-Snake River Irrigators Association: Advancing Irrigated Agriculture and Water Resources Management. The Columbia-Snake River Irrigators Association (CSRIA) represents many of Eastern Washington’s most prominent farming operations, with its members irrigating aboutacres of prime row crop, vineyard, and orchard lands.

The project provides irrigation water to 2, farms. Apples, wheat and corn are the largest-volume crops. There also are large herds of dairy cows and beef cattle. Annually, the cash value of farm production in the Columbia Basin Project is about $ million.

Contact Info. The Columbia Basin is a major area for the production of potatoes, sweetcorn, melons and onions and a number of other temperate vegetables, herbs and vegetable seeds. Crops are produced for both fresh market and processing. The Columbia Basin vegetable region includes parts of Gillam, Morrow, and Umatilla counties as indicated on the map at right.

The Columbia Basin Project is located in the central part of Washington State in the counties of Adams, Douglas, Franklin, Stevens, Okanogan, Grant, Lincoln, and Walla Walla. The primary feature of the project is Grand Coulee Dam, which is located on the main stem of the Columbia River about 90 miles west of gloryland-church.com: Joe Simonds.

Dryland Crops and Weed Research at the Columbia Basin Agricultural Research Center The project objectives: Investigate new herbicides to improve weed management and environmental suitability for eastern Oregon dryland crops.

Particular emphasis will be placed on weed management in intensive dryland crop rotations using direct seeding. Farmers in the irrigated Columbia Basin of eastern Washington are using a variety of soil improvement practices: (1) organic amendments, (2) cover crops and green manures, and (3) high residue.

The Columbia Basin Project (or CBP) in Central Washington, United States, is the irrigation network that the Grand Coulee Dam makes possible.

It is the largest water reclamation project in the United States, supplying irrigation water to overacres (2, km 2) of the 1, acres (4, km 2) large project area, all of which was originally intended to be supplied and is still.

Washington Irrigation. Washington's designation as "The Evergreen State" really only applies to half of the state. The Cascade Mountain Range effectively drains most of the moisture from the atmosphere onto the west side of the mountains leaving the east side with plenty of sunshine, but very little rainfall.

Cover crops in the Columbia Basin are planted for a variety of reasons, including prevention of wind erosion, sequestration of nutrients, suppression of soil-borne pathogens, and improvement of soil organic matter. Extensive research has been conducted on the use of mustards as a fall. Alfalfa Production.

This extension bulletin is an excellent resource for growers interested in producing organic alfalfa, both irrigated and dryland. Alfalfa provides an excellent transitional crop for those interested in organic production of other crops as well.

Columbia Basin Irrigation has transformed what was once sagebrush and desert in this region into some of the most productive farmland in the nation. Wheat, potatoes, onions, vegetables for processing, watermelon, tree fruit, and alfalfa are grown in this area.

The purposes of these budgets are to estimate the costs and returns from producing these crops for research and policy purposes and to provide producers and their credit providers with a tool to use in enterprise selection and financing.
