Two Rivers has developed and operates a revolutionary new water business model suitable for arid regions in the southwestern United States whereby the Company synergistically integrates irrigated farming and wholesale water distribution into one company, utilizing a practice of rotational farm fallowing.
Rotational farm fallowing, as it applies to water, is a best methods farm practice whereby portions of farm acreage are temporarily fallowed in cyclic rotation to give soil an opportunity to reconstitute itself. As a result of fallowing, an increment of irrigation water can be made available for municipal use without permanently drying up irrigated farmland. Collaborative rotational farm fallowing agreements between farmers and municipalities make surplus irrigation water available for urban use during droughts and, conversely, make surplus urban water available for irrigation during relatively wet periods.
The Company produces and markets high value vegetable and fodder crops on its irrigated farmland and provides wholesale water distribution through farm fallowing agreements in its initial area of focus on the Arkansas River and its tributaries on the southern Front Range of Colorado.
