A potato grower in the Klamath Basin estimated that, in the worst case, water unavailability would cost him 70 percent of both his fresh market seed potato operation and about the same percentage in the packing shed. The longer the planting delay, the smaller the crop, but farmers were hard pressed to decide what to do when they were unsure of whether they could get irrigation water.
