All our crops that are irrigated, are irrigated with water from the Sacramento River. We don’t get summer rains like other places, but because we farm on islands, we do have a high water table.
The high water table can help us not use so much water, but can also drown out our crops. The 2 main ways we irrigate corn are furrow irrigation and spud ditches. Both ways pull water from the river and disperse it to the corn.
Over the past few years there have been heated debates about sending our water else where. If this were to happen, our farming operations and lively hood, would suffer - if not collapse.
Do you have any questions about our irrigation processes?
