Restoring The Colorado Delta, Data-Driven Farming

Season 8, Episode 5 of 7

Where the Colorado River approaches the Sea of Cortez, a new agreement between the U.S. and Mexico shares the river's water during times of drought and surplus and dedicates water to the environment, restoring flows and habitat along the river and at the Delta. Conservationists are working hard to re-plant forests and promote wildlife habitat to revive the Delta after years of neglect and desertification. On the leading edge of agricultural technology, young farmers are using data to minimize costs, improve yield and increase profits; a fourth-generation farmer in Illinois shows how it's done.
