The research presented in this paper is an examination of what factors affect the efficient/inefficient use of water among Georgia's farmers. Differences in intra-agriculture water usage are analyzed along two primary dimensions of interest: (1) farm type and (2) farm size. It is hypothesized that additional technical efficiency with water is accounted for by farms that adhere to culturally alternative agricultural practices, such as organic and conservation tillage, compared to conventional agricultural practices.
