Comments Off on California farmers to voluntarily cut water usage by 25 percent

As California’s drought deepens, state regulators just accepted a historic offer by a group of farmers to voluntarily reduce their water usage by 25 percent. Farmers in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta are giving up some of the water that is historically theirs to use, so long as the state does not impose deeper mandatory cuts in the future. The delta is a major part of California’s water system, and the fertile land around it produces nearly half of the fruits and vegetables grown in the United States.
