Learn First-Hand From Farmers and Irrigators about Water Supply Impacts to Nation’s Breadbasket on Central Valley Tour
California’s San Joaquin Valley produces 25 percent of the nation’s food, including 40 percent of all fruits, nuts and vegetables consumed throughout the country. Despite this winter’s deluge, many farmers in the San Joaquin Valley will face another season amid changing drought conditions. Challenges that still face California’s agricultural heartland include reduced surface water allocations, overdrafted groundwater basins and decreasing water quality.
On our annual Central Valley Tour, taking place March 8-10, you will meet and talk to farmers, irrigators, water managers and food producers. You will also meet with several of the San Joaquin River Exchange Contractors, have dinner at a local winery with its owners, walk through the heart of an irrigation district, and tour farms that span thousands of acres.
