Sustainable Agriculture

As demands on limited water resources increase in the face of development, population growth and climate change, effective water resource management is essential for sustainable food production in both rain-fed and irrigated agricultural systems. Government agencies need to understand the impacts of agricultural practices on land and water resources, to make informed decisions for better management. Companies in the food and beverage sector recognize that having a sustainable supply of agricultural ingredients is essential for continued growth and success.

LimnoTech is a leader in environmental issues related to agriculture, and the development of customized decision-support tools. We have conducted water footprint assessments for agricultural products ranging from orange juice to onions, that help companies and consumers understand water use from farm to table. Our watershed models link land use practices and management practices at the farm level to water quality outcomes in downstream receiving waters.  For all our projects, we bring the best science, technology, and innovation to support informed decisions.

Our experience in sustainable agriculture includes:
  • Watershed modeling and assessment
  • Water footprinting
  • Support to corporate commitments
  • Decision-support tools
