Idaho Drought Resources

Idaho’s vast Snake River plain is one of the most productive irrigated agricultural regions in the western United States. Without vital irrigation water, farm and ranch producers are unable to provide the crop and livestock resources essential for the economy of Idaho. Without irrigation, the high desert of southern Idaho would revert back the rangeland it was prior to irrigation development in the early 1900’s.
