The new drought and the looming threat of a new one mean that farmers are facing the daunting task of growing crops that can’t be watered.

But not everyone is so lucky. 

The new crop drought has some farmers wondering how to get their crops watered. 

“I had a very big crop this year and I had to pump water all the time,” said Brian L. Haug, owner of Harvest Supply in Pueblo, Colo. 

“I had to buy water from a lot of different companies, but I just got tired of it.” 

The drought has forced farmers to invest in pump systems that rely on a sprinkler system and a drip system, both of which can cause problems for crop health and water usage. 

For now, farmers are taking the best of the two systems and just getting their crops to harvest. 

The new crop season is expected to be wetter and drier than the previous crop season, but growers will still have to pump a lot more water than they would have normally. 

Farmers are also worried that the drought could mean an increase in pesticide use, particularly in the fall when it is coldest and the crop is usually more susceptible to frostbite. 

With a new crop year looming, the new crop water usage and water supply issues are starting to make their way into the minds of farmers. 

According to the National Agricultural Water Development Board, drought can affect water quality by disrupting crop production, causing soil compaction, and disrupting plant growth. 

Many farmers are concerned that the new drought will impact their water supplies and reduce their crop yields, even as farmers are still getting through the new year. 

While it may not be the first time a crop has to be waterlogged, it is the first drought to cause farmers to question whether they have enough water for their crops, according to Mike J. Heffernan, a farmer in the Pueblos’ Puebla Valley. 

 “When you look at the drought and what we’re going through, you don’t see much improvement, but there is a lot to be concerned about,” said Heffen.

“There are some crops that have a very high water requirement and that’s something that you just have to make sure you get to that crop in time.” 

Haug is not alone. 

Other farmers in the area have said that the last time they had to water their crops and irrigate their fields was when they had a big flood in 2013. 

In 2015, the last year for which there was data, there were 4.4 million more days in the year than there were in 2013, according the National Weather Service. 

Some farmers are starting their own irrigation systems to get rid of excess water, which has increased the use of drip irrigation, which uses a system of sprinklers to drip water into a crop. 

Hefferna said that farmers should be careful what they pump and how much water they use. 

But if the drought does make it to harvest, the biggest question is what happens to the crop that is growing in the soil and what will happen to the water it is using to grow it. 

Water can become very scarce during drought conditions. 

During a severe drought, when there are no water sources, crops can be destroyed. 

A 2016 study by the National Academy of Sciences found that crops that grow in drought conditions have an increased likelihood of being damaged and could die, and even die from other issues like bacterial and fungal infections, salinity and temperature changes. 

There are several factors that farmers need to consider before deciding what to do about the new growing season. 

If the drought worsens or if the water quality does not improve, it could be a good time to look into water conservation measures, according Michael A. Smith, the director of the Center for Agronomy and Extension in Washington, D.C. We need to be aware of how our irrigation practices and water use are affecting the water we are using, and the potential for harm if we fail to protect it.

This is a time for us to get a little more smart about how we manage our water, he said. 

Hecks water system can use a sprinklers system, which involves spraying water into the soil, as well as using drip irrigation to water crops. 

When he has water to use, he pumps it into a hose to irrigate crops.

“We’ve seen this before,” said Smith.

“It’s really hard to manage water.

I think this is a perfect opportunity for us as growers to figure out how to manage our own water better and make sure we are taking good care of our own land, our crops and our water.” 

But not everyone in the Valley is optimistic that the water shortages will be solved this year.

“I would say that in a year or two or three, maybe we’ll see some improvement, if the crop does well,” said Haug. However,
