AgriMet Funding Sources and Sponsors

The AgriMet program is funded by a combination of federally appropriated dollars through the Bureau of Reclamation's Water Conservation Field Services Program (WCFSP), along with contributions from a variety of sponsors outside of Reclamation. The funding from Reclamation supports the salary and support costs of the AgriMet Program Manager position, while the sponsor funding supports all other activities, such as the salary of a part time student position, travel, equipment and supplies, maintenance of the weather station network, and support of the satellite receive site.

The contributions from the various sponsors are pooled into a "sponsor account" from which all operation and maintenance activities of the weather station network are funded. Operational costs are averaged over a several year period, and adjustments to the annual operation and maintenance assessment are made as required.

Reclamation would like to recognize and thank the following sponsors for support of the AgriMet network. Without this support, the program would not be possible:
