This is one of the few farms in the region that is shifting away from water intensive rice cultivation toward alternative cash crops such as eggplant. The Columbia Water Center is working with several progressive farmers in order to broaden the region?s agricultural base away from rice. The goal is both to improve rural incomes and enhance resource sustainability.
