The California Dept. of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is holding two meetings to introduce its new program for on-farm water conservation practices and to hear comments and suggestions from growers.  The first meeting will be held in Sacramento on April 11; the second in Modesto on April 18:

Friday, April 11, 2014 – 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Emergency drought legislation (SB 103) allocates $10 million to CDFA which will be used to create the CDFA Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program, a grant program to increase water conservation through efficiencies and better management and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.  More information about this program is available here

Program implementation will be on or before July 1, 2014.
