Irrigation water in many parts of the state were cut off the last two weeks of the season. Watermaster Rex Barrie from District 63 in Star.
"We did have water, unfortunately, we didn't have enough," said Barrie. It was a season more than 21 water days short: "And so our yields suffered, I know our onion yields suffered significantly and sugar beets a little bit," said this Canyon County farmer.
That's farmer Sid Freeman, he says the 21 season was a first for him:
"I've lived out there for 50 years and I don't remember a situation where they ever told us in an average year, the water will get us through the end of August only," said Freeman. "It's forced us to be better irrigators and hopefully it will pay off in the end."
