Farm worker Angel Salas installs pipes to siphon well water from a ditch into furrows on Ed Sills' rice farm in Pleasant Grove on Wednesday, May 7, 2014. The furrowed field will be planted with popcorn instead of rice. Organic rice farmer Ed Sills has had to change his organic rice farming operation to accommodate for drought by shifting some of his focus to popcorn and beans.
