dc.description.abstractJake Madison farms in Echo, Oregon, growing wheat, corn, alfalfa, canola, and onions. He also leases ground to other farmers for production of potatoes, peas, beans, and grass seed. In this publication, Madison discusses how deficit irrigation of wheat, corn, and alfalfa allows him to conserve water for onions and other high value crops. The strategy has enabled him to run a profitable farm business despite limited access to irrigation water. This case study is part of the Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study project, which explores innovative approaches regional farmers are using that may increase their resilience in the face of a changing climate.
