"Without it [irrigation], well like this year, you'd have nothing [no crops because of a dry year]. With it, even if it rains, it still pays for itself because you know it's going to rain. The knowledge that you can plant heavy, fertilize heavy – because you will have the water if you need it – is worth a lot."
