Irrigating raises profits


Grady Sampson: I first met David Smith some years ago and he did not have irrigation. He was experiencing issues related to drought, so I talked with him several times, trying to encourage him to go down to NRCS with USDA to see if they would have a program that would help him. After we had the opportunity to look at the programs with NRCS, he was granted a grant for irrigation. With that irrigation system, he has improved his production. He will have fifty percent more crops that are marketable than he did before he got the irrigation.

David Smith: We have a drought problem. He talked to me about putting in an irrigation system. We have a better crop, we have a better profit on the crops. It does well.
