Rodolfo Melchor fills a planting machine with water, before bringing over to another field on Rober Weimer's farm. Melchor has been working for Weimer for 8 years. Robert Weimer is farmer in Merced County near Atwater, CA. He primarily grows almonds, sweetpotatoes and peaches. Bob, as he is generally known, has made significant investments in water efficiency over the years, and applies scientific rigor throughout his operation. The sole source for above-ground water in his area is Lake McClure, which is perilously low. Historically,the region has primarily relied on groundwater. Now that is more the case then ever.
