Day 6 - part 2

I forgot to post one thought that deserves a post of its own.  Irrigation is needed in some areas, but is rare. If a farmer wants to irrigated and can get the permits it is very expensive. Below are the costs for farmers.
German farmers pay 1.8€ per mm hectare for just the water, they pay 2.5€ per hectacre for all the costs involved.  How much are they paying per acre foot in U.S. dollars? How much for just the water and for all costs? No cheating, you must show your work.
By the way, this is a picture of the Oder river, on the other side is Poland.
