THE LATEST NEWS FOR CALIFORNIA’S DROUGHT

March 8, 2015

The latest news about California entering its fourth year of drought is that many farmers (and thus everyone in the States who eats produce) will be widely affected.

According to a CNBC Agricultural article posted on February 27th, 2015, “A U.S. agency said Friday it will not release any water for Central Valley farms this year, forcing farmers to continue to scramble for other sources or leave fields unplanted. It will be the second year of no federal water for farmers in the region that grows much of America’s produce.”

 

And another article by Fox News said, “…many farmers are running out of short-term options to deal with water shortages, such as uprooting orchards and tapping groundwater wells… storage supplies and pumping from largely unregulated groundwater wells [are] quickly being depleted.

 

All to say, things aren’t looking too well for Californians and American agriculture and economy in general. Let’s hope for more rain and more solutions now.
