Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed B1740 yesterday, investing $1.2 billion over three years to fund projects that will bring additional water to the state to secure Arizona’s water future, improve existing water infrastructure and implement effective conservation tools. The projects will help ensure that Arizona families, businesses and agriculture continue to have adequate long-term water supplies.

Beginning in January 2021, the agricultural community in the Salinas Valley came together in an effort known as California Agricultural Neighbors (CAN).

Led by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the Monterey County Farm Bureau (MCFB), CAN provided a roundtable opportunity to foster collaboration and discuss enhanced neighborly food safety practices when various agriculture operations such as leafy green fields, cattle ranches, vineyards and compost sites are adjacent to one another.
