On Tuesday, January 12, Western Growers and a dozen of its fresh produce allies sent a letter to President-elect Joe Biden, highlighting several international trade matters that are jointly important to the group. Agricultural trade has been a hot button issue in recent years - particularly under the Trump Administration - and it is expected to stay at the forefront of the broader industry’s mind for the near future.

IRVINE, Calif. (January 12, 2021) – A national coalition of over 200 agricultural organizations and urban and rural water districts urged President-elect Joe Biden and congressional leadership today to address aging Western water infrastructure in any potential infrastructure or economic recovery package.

 

The coalition includes organizations from 15 states that collectively represent $120 billion in agricultural production, nearly one-third of all agricultural production in the country, and tens of millions of urban and rural water users.
