Recently, Cal/OSHA has developed guidance related to COVID-19 infection prevention in agriculture. Links to this guidance, along with other agriculture-specific Cal/OSHA resources, are provided below.

As of June 15, USDA has allocated nearly $2.9 billion of $16 billion in direct payments as part of its Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP).

Specialty crops continue to lag other sectors of the agriculture industry, receiving just $53 million (1.8%) of the total funds spent to date. Furthermore, the specialty crop industry has only submitted 1,500 (0.6%) of the approximately 275,000 applications.

Western Growers Board of Directors’ nomination ballots were emailed to all regular members for the two-year term through 2022. Our new, secure online voting platform replaces the old paper-ballot system and focuses on privacy, security and verifiability—all of which are paramount to hosting an honest election. 

The nomination ballot is the first step in a two-part process. It lists prospective candidates from your district for inclusion on the official ballot. The official ballot will be emailed to you in September in order to vote to fill the allotted board seats.
