"It's disheartening to lose your rice farming and your livelihood," Elliott said.  "I hope we can survive this; we had to retool and spend over $250,000 to buy a planter, tractor and equipment." Matagorda County farmers are being forced to downsize their farming operation and change crops, from rice to dry land corn, due to a lack of irrigation water for the third consecutive year from the Colorado River.
