If you're close to Texas A&M University in the middle of January, and want to spent $15 on a lunch, then treat yourself to the High Plains Irrigation Conference and Trade Show, which will discuss, among other things, how ethanol production affects irrigation.
The conference will be held January 17th at the Amarillo Civic Center and will also cover non-ethanol issues like other alternative fuels, wind energy and chemigation (now there's an ugly sounding word).

The growing ethanol industry's ever-increasing demand for corn might also affect farmer's irrigation needs and abilities, said Leon New, a Texas Cooperative Extension specialist, who is helping to organize the conference. With better information about the current and upcoming irrigation situation in Texas, farmers can make better decisions, New said.
