Abstract

In 1988, the Legislature of the State of Michigan used energy overcharge funds to create the Michigan Energy Conservation Program for Agriculture and Forestry (MECP).This three year (1988-1990) program was designed to assist Michigan farmers and forestry products producers to identify and adopt management practices which will conserve energy and save them money. The program was implemented through a multi-agency effort. The purpose of this paper is to describe the statewide Irrigation Management and Scheduling Program and the inter-agency cooperation that was required for a successful irrigation management program including the dvelopment and maintenance of new linkages. After two years, the MECP project has proven to be very successful.
