Water conservation goals can be achieved without severe restrictions on irrigation that would damage the economy of Texas High Plains. That's the message of a public information campaign launched last week by Texas corn producers.

"Agriculture brings billions of dollars into the economy of the Panhandle and South Plains every year and is the main driver of economic growth in the region," said David Gibson, executive director of the Texas Corn Producers Board.

"Through research and development of new technology, we are finding ways to grow more crops with less water. This means we can conserve water for future generations without sacrificing economic growth today."
