Jerry Stevens enrolled in the Rainwater-Basin Wetlands Reserve Enhancement Program, which restores and protects wetlands in fields under production by allowing center pivots to cross the rainwater basins. It's win-win. The program protects a wetland, and allows the producer to farm the circle around it.

This is the third in a three-part series on the NRCS Ogallala Aquifer Initiative.  It originally aired on High Plains Public Radio December 17, 2013.
