2012 -2014 Fallowing Program applications available


IID is now initiating the solicitation for the traditional mid-year (July 1, 2013-June 30, 2014) fallowing program with a payment rate of $125 per acre-foot, as authorized by the board on Aug. 7, 2012.

To increase participation and ensure fallowing is rotational, IID has modified the eligibility criteria for the fallowing program limitation from two out of every four years to three out of every five years.

IID will continue to provide the early-start option flexibility for up to an additional six months in the 2013-2014 fallowing program. This would allow for start dates beginning as early as Jan. 1, 2013, and create fallowing terms from 12-18 months.
