National Policy Needed for Farming

By Jessica Theisman, Associate Editor

California Ag Today recently interviewed Peterangelo Vallis, our ambassador for agriculture, about changes needed for farming. He is also the executive director of the San Joaquin Valley Winegrowers Association.

According to him, the government has a track record on the inability to get things done, and that includes projects that impact agriculture.

“Now in America, we have huge problems getting things done, building buildings, building dams, building rails, building infrastructure and building anything,” Vallis said.

“There is no national day or any local goals and objectives. We are not hearing anything to meet those goals and objectives,” he said. “I’m suggesting that there needs to be a state and national policy for farming.”
