Ag and the Local Economy Features in Video

Video Highlights Importance of Ag
On Oct. 3, local businesses and ag entities were part of an event in an alfalfa field, west of Firebaugh in Fresno County. The goal of the event was to show how important an alfalfa crop is to the economy of a local community. It highlighted everything involved in producing a field of alfalfa from fertilizers to PCAs to the milk produced by the cows who will eat the alfalfa.
The impact of not producing an alfalfa field due to a zero water allocation next year is highlighted in the video, which was produced by the California Farm Water Coalition.
