The irrigated land is generally a sandy loam soil capable of raising all crops associated with the area. Main crops include Corn, Irrigated Winter Wheat, Sugar Beets, Alfalfa, and Edible Beans. The rotations of these crops allows for adequate water distribution even in these dry years under current water limitations. The pivots and equipment vary in age.
