Secretary Ross joins Rominger brothers for conservation award

CDFA secretary Karen Ross (second from left) joined the Rominger Brothers of Yolo County (second and third from right) for the presentation of the 2019 Leopold Conservation Award this morning at the California Farm Bureau’s annual meeting in Monterey. The farming operation of Bruce and Rick Rominger was recognized for measures including water-wise drip irrigation and in-field moisture sensors, habitat-improvement efforts, and managing irrigation water in rice fields to boost declining shorebird populations.
