Energy storage
Energy storage
Renewable energy production is intermittent and not always available when needed. The ideal storage system will provide an agricultural producer the option of either (a) using the energy stored, as needed, to power large loads such as irrigations pumps, or (b) selling excess or stored energy back to the utility during peak load. Lastly, an underlying requirement of iCAST's CAES pilot was to provide the agricultural community an affordable energy storage solution utilizing "off-the-shelf" parts - to make it fairly easy and cost-effective for the typical agricultural worker to commission, operate and repair the equipment., presented to the Colorado Department of Agriculture by International Center for Appropriate & Sustainable Technology., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed August 2018)

Exploring the viability of low head hydro in Colorado's existing irrigation infrastructure : final report
Exploring the viability of low head hydro in Colorado's existing irrigation infrastructure : final report
This study focuses on low head technologies which can be productively installed in existing constrained waterways that were originally intended for delivering irrigation water, a hydropower area that appears to be lacking in overall knowledge. A number of low cost, low head turbines have recently been introduced to the market, but are unknown to Colorado's water users. The purpose of this study is to provide relevant information to agriculturally-related water users on the opportunities that may exist to implement low head hydropower on their systems., prepared by Applegate Group, Inc.

Feedlot emergency disease response plan
Feedlot emergency disease response plan
Feedlots are premises with a high concentration of livestock and a high movement of livestock both entering and exiting the premises. The result of these factors leads to the opportunity for rapid spread of a disease outbreak within, into or out of the feedlot at a more accelerated rate than other livestock operations., Cover title., "November 2010.", Mode of access: World Wide Web.

Field standard operating procedures for activities of the Agricultural Chemicals & Groundwater Protection Program
Field standard operating procedures for activities of the Agricultural Chemicals & Groundwater Protection Program
This manual provides detailed methodology for the three most common sampling approaches used by the Agricultural Chemicals & Groundwater Protection Program for its monitoring responsibilities: monitoring well sampling with either a peristaltic pump or pneumatic bladder pump, and sampling of domestic or irrigation wells. It is expected that all field personnel have reviewed and learned the methodology contained within this manual before attempting to conduct sampling events in the field., authors: Karl Mauch, Andrew Ross., Colorado Department of Agriculture, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and Colorado State University Extension jointly administer the Agricultural Chemicals & Groundwater Protection (Program), "February 2014.", Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed April 2017)

Final report for the surface to aquifer energy storage
Final report for the surface to aquifer energy storage
A new method of storing electrical energy in an agricultural setting for irrigation application has been analyzed. System design analysis, modeling methods, operation reviews, and aquifer hydrogeology research demonstrates that this is a feasible method for storing energy on-site., Title from first sentence of cover letter dated June 2008., Interim report: surface-to-aquifer pumped hydroelectric energy storage for agriculture -- Aquifer underground pumped hydroelectric energy storage / Gregory Martin -- Well sitting report., Mode of access: World Wide Web.

Flying drones in rural areas
Flying drones in rural areas
Drones are fun to fly but they can be hazardous to low flying planes and helicopters in rural areas. Tests indicate drones are very difficult for pilots to spot. Drone users need to be aware that crop dusters and fire fighting planes fly at very low levels and that crops can mute the sounds of engines. Be aware of locations of small rural or private airstrips to fly safe., video created by James Amos., video file MPEG 32.8MB, Streaming video files available in MP4 (32.8 MB), Produced by: Colorado Department of Agriculture, Digital Media Program., Testing by: Colorado Agricultural Aviation Association; Agribotix--Agricultural Intelligence Drone-enabled; UAS Colorado; Avian., Description based on online resource; title from title screen (viewed August 2018)
