Of the total value of harvested crops, 90% is derived from irrigated cropland. Irri gation is an energy intensive process. About 65% of the water used for irrigation is pumped from groundwater sources. In east central New Mexico water is pumped from wells that extend to a depth of 500 to 6001. Some farmers in this area expend as much as $50/A for energy to pump irrigation water. Livestock production is dominant in New Mexico.
