Wrong place to grow water-hungry crops

Letters to the editor

[Forum] Call me heartless, but I am afraid that I have very little sympathy for ‘Big Irrigation’, who also steal water by by-passing their meters, who insist on growing water-hungry crops such as rice and cotton on the second driest continent on the planet.

Antarctic snow is not counted as rain.

That said, my heart goes out to the real farmers who are indeed doing it tough, so please help those who are struggling to feed you, because your food does not grow on a supermarket shelf.
