Farms, floodplains, flyways: Drought impacts, opportunities in the Sacramento Valley

In the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area along I-80 in the Sacramento Valley, California Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross (left) engages in a discussion of partnerships between the agricultural community and state and federal resources agencies to make the most of winter precipitation to benefit farming as well as cooperative conservation, habitat and biodiversity efforts. U.S. Representative Mike Thompson (continuing from left, foreground), State Conservationist Carlos Suarez with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and USDA Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation Robert Bonnie were among the gathering of farmers and other stakeholders. The group continues the discussion this afternoon further north in Colusa County, with a briefing on drought impacts in farming communities.
