New Mexico Farming Firm Expected to Lose $4M over Breach

December 27, 2016

A breach earlier this year in the water delivery system that serves Navajo Agricultural Products Industry is expected to end up costing the tribal business in New Mexico more than $4 million in lost revenue.

The Daily Times reported the breach in May left the 80,000-acre farm without water for nearly a month.

The estimate includes losses from the potato harvest. A representative from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and a NAPI insurance agent determined potato rot was caused by the water problem and heat stress on the crop.
