Where we’re from, farming and ranching is a way of life to a great deal of our customers. Russell Industries is no stranger to agriculture and irrigation in Wyoming. When it comes to agriculture, we have what you need to manage farm waste, irrigation, fertilizer and other utility applications. Irrigation is the largest use of Wyoming’s consumptive water, it’s big for our state and it’s big for us at Russell Industries.
“Consumptive use refers to the quantity of water evaporated, transpired, and/or incorporated into the products produced in connection with vegetative growth, food and industrial processing, and municipal use. Irrigation is by far the largest consumptive use of water in the state. Average annual consumptive use of surface water in irrigated agriculture is estimated to be 2.3 million acre-feet. Approximately 300,000 acre-feet of groundwater is also consumed by irrigated agriculture each year.
As in all western states, Wyoming’s irrigated agriculture accounts for 80 to 85 percent of the consumptive use in the state. Approximately 60 percent of the farms and ranches in Wyoming irrigate. Wyoming’s irrigated cropland acreage varies between 1.2 and 1.6 million acres from year to year, depending upon available surface water supplies.”
