How Farming Inside Wildlife Refuges Is Transforming Klamath Basin Agriculture

While controversial, the common practice of farming on the Klamath wildlife refuges has resulted in an interesting new direction for agriculture across the basin.

Ryan Hartman is driving from field to field in the Klamath Basin, giving what amounts to a masterclass on how to run logistics for 3,000 acres of farmland.

He troubleshoots equipment at one spot, sets planting depth drills on another a mile away, and farther on, shows a few of his 12 employees where to install an irrigation pipe.

This is the final story in a three-part series on the wildlife refuges of the Klamath Basin and water in the arid West. Read part one and part two.
