John Cardoza, a project manager with Sustainable Conservation, talks about the use of drip irrigation in dairy feed crops during a tour of DeJager Farms, southeast of Merced, Calif., on Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015. This group, which is based in San Francisco and has a Modesto branch office, is testing this water-saving system with NetafimUSA, which makes drip irrigation supplies and has a Fresno branch. The pipes behind Cardoza are part of a filtering system for manure-tainted wastewater that is mixed with fresh water and applied to feed crops.
