About the District
The Gila Bend NRCD is a large district located in the lower Gila River Valley and the desert areas to the south. Most of the District is arid shrublands with some irrigated farming and dairies along the Gila River. Most of the land outside the farming area is federal land, a vast majority of it being wildlife preserves or military reservations. Because of this, the main focus of the District has been on irrigated farming. The District takes the lead in organizing and facilitating technical assistance and cost sharing for its Cooperators to implement conservation practices designed to conserve water and increase crop yields. Such practices include irrigation water delivery systems, sprinklers, crop rotations, land leveling, and other measures to improve agricultural viability.
