California agriculture is rebounding (In the News)


Sept. 11, 2016 — With cash receipts declining $9 billion, California fared no better than the rest of nation last year, reported Western Farm Press. But America’s No. 1 agricultural state could be looking forward to a rebound in 2016, thanks to an improved drought scenario and small improvements in commodity prices. 

Vernon Crowder, senior analyst for Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory (FAR) group, said, “The California ag industry has been doing well (economically) over the past five years with high commodity prices and crop shortages.”
