Abstract

Irrigation water cost data and the value of water in production for the four principal crops grown in the Texas High Plains, at a wide range of product prices, were used to estimate the price per kilowatt-hour of electricity needed to equate net returns from current irrigation practices and dryland production over time. Results indicate that rising energy prices without corresponding rises in product prices could result in energy, rather than water, being the limiting factor in High Plains irrigation.
