Agribusiness ignores water answers

Re "Agribusiness excess is reason California again running dry” (Viewpoints, Jan. 26): In 1999, I toured Israel near the Sea of Galilee, where I saw a banana plantation (well above the lake) which had only drip irrigation. There were no visible ditches or canals. This demonstrated to me that California agribusinesses have solutions that they could use but choose to ignore. The canals, too, could be converted to pipelines, safe from water loss due to evaporation.
