Farmers are 'paying through the nozzle' to keep their crops viable.

A Granite Belt farmer has described the ongoing drought as the worst in living memory, after spending almost $1 million to truck in water.

Tim Carnell (pictured) says he freighted water daily for almost six months, for his tomato and capsicum plants during the drought.

He told the A.B.C...it saved his crop, but cost a fortune.
