Western Kansas Weather Modification Program

Lakin, KS

Mission Goals:
Within our primary target area during the crop growing season the Western Kansas Weather Modification Program (WKWMP) objectives are two fold:

(1) to reduce crop and property damaging hail to the best of our ability.

(2) to optimize usable precipitation during the growing season

We employ leading edge seeding techniques and technology. Our methods have been
scientifically researched and are mainstream within the weather modification community. We are operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from April 18th through Sept. 16th this year to provide this service to 11 counties in Western and Southwestern Kansas.
