Soybean producers in Mississippi irrigate the third most acres in the U.S., second only to Nebraska and Arkansas. The vast majority of these irrigated soybean acres are in the Delta.

Most of this water is pumped from the Delta alluvial aquifer. Consider the following document when managing and reducing the decline in the aquifer water level.
