Jibbs Vineyard in Byromville GA was able to install drip irrigation to more efficiently irrigate the vineyard on Mar. 6, 2013. Vineyard owner Howard James mentioned, “It conserves water tremendously. We can take less water and go farther.” James was able to apply for financial and technical assistance through the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative (CCPI) funded through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP.) The CCPI is a voluntary program to achieve and enhance soil and water conservation objectives. James also has a Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) for farmers who make it a priority to continuously have conservation plans in place to address natural resource concerns. James has been able to address soil erosion under CSP assistance. He also has a different EQIP contract to retrofit pivots for overhead irrigation to reduce evaporation that gets water closer to his other crops, collards, cotton, peanuts and wheat. Jibbs Vineyard is in Dooly County Georgia, a designated USDA Strike Force Initiative county selected to receive assistance to relieve persistent poverty in high poverty counties.
