Irrigation Organizations: Water Inflows and Outflows

Irrigation water delivery organizations provide water for about 19 million irrigable acres, or approximately a third of all irrigated harvested cropland in the United States.

The report is the fourth in a series of economic briefs on key topics related to irrigation organizations using data collected in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 2019 Survey of Irrigation Organizations.
