New map shows how Nebraska's farmland is used
November 21, 2007
The University of Nebraska at Lincoln has assembled a mass of data
and produced a land-use map
for the state, depicting irrigation patterns and other useful information
about the state's land use. Among other things, the map offers an eye-opening view of just how much of the state relies on center-pivot irrigation (which sometimes uses vertical-turbine pumps
to create pressure).
