The Progressive forage Grower has a nice article about double compressing bales of hay AND wrapping them as if they were silage.  
When this becomes common practice irrigation water will indeed be shipped off shore in a Container full of high moisture hay.  
Currently shipping hay is not directgly shipping water, but with 30% or 40% moisture packages then we will truly be shipping water to China.  
see pp 29 & 30 Wrapping high-moisture alfalfa hay: Opportunities and Issues
