Re: “The Effects of Agriculture on Idaho's Water Usage

The sad fact is all that Idaho water is going to water things like mcdonald's french fries and America's school lunch beef. More than 95% of Idaho agricultural products are shipped off to feed other people in other states and countries. Those people are using Idaho water too.

If Idaho's metro areas grew, the per capita use would go down. It ain't like we are drinking and eating all that water. Local produce is a very low percentage of Idaho ag. Go ask Simplot what their conservation practices are; that's Idaho agriculture. And demand that your fries are drip irrigated.
