Is agriculture trying to use less water with irrigation?

    Yes. As part of the federal government’s economic stimulus program, the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) will fund projects to pay for infrastructure and equipment to enhance on-farm irrigation efficiency. Among such considerations, center pivot irrigation systems are not as efficient as drip irrigation but more efficient than wheel lines, flood irrigation and other common irrigation systems. Agricultural interests work behind the scenes to assure that USDA conservation programs deliver the maximum benefits to farmers and corporate bottom lines with a minimum of actual change in operations – including water consumption.
