Extension Utah Irrigated Acreage Surveys

In 1990s and mid-2000s, Utah State University Extension performed irrigated acreage surveys, lead by Dr. Robert Hill, then Extension Irrigation Specialist in the Department of Biological and Irrigation Engineering. The surveys included the input from many county agents and other staff also. Although not current now, this data may be of historical interest. The original survey products were spreadsheet tables, which have now been converted to web-based tables and formatted for consistency across survey years.
