Direct funding support for the creation, development, and current maintenance of SoyWater as a fully functional website was provided via a research grant submitted to and approved by the Water, Energy and Agriculture Initiative (WEAI). WEAI is jointly funded by the Nebraska Soybean Board, Nebraska Corn Board, Agricultural Research Division of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and the UNL Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research, with funding support from the Nebraska Public Power District. Website server, meteorological database, and other maintenance support for SoyWater were (and continue to be) provided by the High Plains Regional Climate Center. We also thank UNL Extension Educators Keith Glewen, Jennifer Rees, Gary Zoubek, Dave Varner, and Aaron Nygren for providing us with their perceptions and suggestions when they performed a trial run of near-final version of the 2010 SoyWater website.
