In addition to its drought web page which was announced last week, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is teaming with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to hold information sessions for farmers on various drought resources that are available to them. According to a press release issued February 12, the sessions will be held throughout the state and will provide information on a variety of state and federal programs.   Information sessions begin on February 18th and are scheduled to run through February 26.
