    The story is mentioning the “big business” aspect of this. Not the smaller growers using a greenhouse. A huge amount of water will be wasted from any outdoor operation since they are in a drought and a lot will evaporate before the plant even gets a chance to use it. So you could for example divert 5 gallons of water through irrigation channels but have 1 gallon of water available that actually reaches the plant. Some areas of the world even cover irrigation channels to slow the large loss due to evaporation.
