Growing Partnership: Water and Ag Leaders Promote Farm Economy
The Water Authority and its member agencies collaborated with local agriculture industry leaders such as the San Diego County Farm Bureau, Specialty Produce, and Jimbo’s … Naturally! to highlight the importance of water to the region’s $4.8 billion agriculture industry as part of the regional Brought to You by Water outreach and education program.
“Farming is a foundational piece of our regional economy and quality of life – but it doesn’t happen without a reliable water supply. Our farmers are constantly innovating to use water more efficiently by adopting new technology and planting more-efficient crops.”
