Zhang Dadi from the Adaohai Number 1 Commune has a 150-meter deep well that he uses to irrigate his crops. Last year he planted 20 mu of land but could only irrigate 15 mu (1 hectare). This year he planted 15 mu but could only irrigate 8, the remaining 7 mu 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. Haolebaoji, Inner Mongolia.
