The farmers responsible for the food that reaches your plate need a lot of a very precious and limited resource, water. NASA works with farmers like Dwane Roth of Kansas to help them track their water use. Roth says that farmers like him are seeing more frequent, hotter days with less rain. “We need to grow more with less and get as much out of each drop of water we can,” he says. NASA helps to promote the use of Earth observations to strengthen food security. One solution is OpenET, a system that puts near-real-time water data into the hands of farmers in the United States.
