DLM1405 Arnie Good, 57, walks amongst the dried up stalks that cover the ground below sparse rows of dry-land corn blowing in the wind at one of his farms in the Bijou Hill area west of Fort Morgan, Colo. The dead stalks are all that remain of the corn that he planted last year, which he watched burn up after the well that supplied its water was ordered to be turned off. This year Good knew he would not be able to irrigate and planted dry land corn, which does not need to be irrigated. Good said with the hot dry conditions this summer he doesn't expect to get a crop out of the dry land corn either. Good's family has farmed this 130 acre circle and two others around Bijou Hill since the mid 1960's, all three of which had their wells shutdown. He said when he was allowed to pump from the wells and irrigate the land it produced about $320,000 worth of crops a year. (DARIN MCGREGOR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Arnie Good (cq)
