If you do not have enough farm workers to harvest your crops, Western Growers wants to know about it.  This is a critical time for immigration reform legislation in Congress and several Representatives have doubts about the need to for immigration reform and a new guest worker program.  Agriculture needs their support and their votes, so we need to keep demonstrating the crisis ag is facing by showing them and the news media, that crops will go un-harvested if we do not have enough workers. 

We have some reports that citrus in Riverside County is currently threatened by a shortage of workers, as are tomatoes in Salinas and peppers in north San Benito county.  If crops need to be disked or left on the vines, we want to know about it before the crop is disked or abandoned.  Please contact us.
