COLEAMBALLY, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEBRUARY 14: The New South Wales Rice Growers hold a meeting for farmers to discuss water issues in the Murray-Darling Basin February 14, 2008 in Coleambally, New South Wales, Australia. "The meeting was a bit scary," said 74-year-old Frank Whelan (center), who didn't plant a crop for the first time in more than 50 years. The slashed water allocations caused a 98 percent drop in rice production from 2006 to 2008 in this area. The Murray-Darling Basin has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990s and many growers and policy makers are being forced to work on implementing more efficient irrigation systems.
