Governor Brown Declares Drought State of Emergency
Governor Brown compares satellite photos of the Sierra
Nevada snow pack from 2013 and 2014.

By now, everyone is aware that Gov. Brown proclaimed a state of emergency on Jan. 17 due to continued dry weather and water shortfalls. In his proclamation, the governor called for all Californians to take voluntary actions to reduce their water usage by 20%, and he provided state agencies with more flexibility in managing water supplies throughout the state.

The impact of the drought proclamation on agriculture will surely take time to be felt as local and state agencies take steps to implement actions to alleviate the anticipated effects of the drought. The Almond Board of California will monitor actions taken by regulatory agencies, as well as legislation introduced on both the state and federal levels, to help agriculture and the almond industry. As more information becomes available, we will let growers know how these actions will impact their operations. The California Department of Food and Agriculture website for drought resources for farmers, ranchers and farmworkers can be found at cdfa.ca.gov/drought/.
