That nice looking equipment just might be for sale....Saudis finally figured out that their most limited resource, over time, will be water, not oil......spent huge amount of money attempting to grow their own wheat/barley.....now in the process of phasing out irrigated production...

 

 

 

Saudi wheat production continues its drastic decline, as the Saudi government enforces its policy to phase-out wheat cultivation by 2016. Total Saudi wheat production in MY 2012/13 is estimated at 780,000 MT, a decline of 34 percent compared to 1.184 MMT in MY 2011/12, and production is forecast to further decline to 700,000 MT in 2013/14. Saudi wheat imports in MY 2012/13 are projected to be 1.960 MMT, compared to a total of 2.9 MMT imported the year before. Saudi Arabia purchased soft wheat for fist time through tenders announced in March. Saudi barley imports in MY 2012/2013 are projected at 7.5 MMT, about 13 percent lower than imports in the previous year. In 2012/13, India controlled 72 percent of the 1.193 MMT Saudi rice import market, followed by the U.S. and Pakistan with 10 and 9 percent market share, respectively. Saudi corn imports are projected to increase 18 percent, to 2.15 MMT in MY 2012/13, mostly due to expanding poultry production and increased corn utilization for sweeteners and starch production.

Makes good sense ray,

 

If the pumping rate from that unit is less than 1000 gallons per minute. And that installation is raising wheat.  That will be very expensive wheat.  I would think it could be imported much cheaper and not use up valued water supply.

 

Even more interesting would be to know what their depletion rate is and how much the recharge rate is.
