Zhang Dadi of the Adaohai number one commune has a 150-meter deep well that he uses to irrigate his corn. Last year he planted 20 mu of land, but could only irrigate 15. This year he planted one hectare, but could only irrigate eight mu and the remaining seven didn’t get irrigated. The water table drops every year and it doesn’t rain. Corn planted over a month ago still hasn’t started to sprout.
