Groundwater pumping propping up farms in California drought

Groundwater pumping propping up farms in California drought | sustainablity | Scoop.it
Consumers will see no shortages of California-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables this year despite one of the worst droughts in state history, but that's because farmers are draining groundwater reserves and leaving no insurance should heavy rains fail to materialize next winter, UC Davis researchers said Tuesday. Howitt and Lund were among the authors of a new study by the watershed sciences center that combined NASA satellite data with economic models to forecast the effect of the drought on Central Valley farm production. The drought is projected to sap $2.2 billion from the state's economy, with $1.5 billion of that coming from agriculture, through revenue losses and higher costs to buy and pump water. Get the most out of itHowitt said the market-driven move by farmers to plant permanent crops such as almond trees and vineyards is the right thing to do, even though such crops cannot be fallowed for a year or two, as with vegetable crops such as lettuce and broccoli. [...] I believe that the crops which are best for California's economy are the ones that make the most money.
