Western Growers invites you to participate in this month’s Lunch and Learn Webinar on the current procedures the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has in place to identify, control and contain invasive species. Dr. Jason Leathers, CDFA’s primary state entomologist, will provide an overview of current procedures and showcase some examples of situations where these procedures have been applied. Please join us to hear from one of the state’s experts on this issue and to ask any questions you may have.

On Tuesday, the Sacramento County Superior Court issued a ruling in the lawsuit brought by Monterey Coastkeeper, et al. against the State Water Resources Control Board for modifications it made to the Regional Board’s Central Coast Agricultural Order governing discharges from irrigated agricultural lands in the Central Coast region. Under the Conditional Waiver program, farmers are required to implement extensive management practices to meet water quality standards, and are required to monitor both surface and groundwater to determine compliance with the Ag Order’s provisions.
