New Drought Fact Sheet Available
March 21, 2014
The California Farm Water Coalition has a brand new fact sheet available on California’s 2014 drought.
The one-page information piece is intended for consumers and breaks down the drought into easy-to-understand sections.
Information includes an updated number of acres expected to be idled this year (800,000 acres), how lost farm production will impact the economy, what consumers can expect to see in stores in the way of food-related price increases and also what farmers have been doing over the years to improve water use efficiency.
The California Farm Water Coalition was formed in 1989 in the midst of a six-year drought. CFWC was formed to increase public awareness of agriculture’s efficient use of water and promote the industry’s environmental sensitivity regarding water.
