Policy Brief
California’s agricultural sector is a strong and important component not only of the state’s economy but also of national and global food production. Protecting and enhancing this important sector, and encouraging innovation in water conservation, labor use, and development of consumer markets, provides benefits not only to farmers, but to the population as a whole. In order to help California’s nationally and internationally important agricultural industry grow and strengthen, local, state, and federal governments should reevaluate counterproductive policies and strategies.
