USAgNet - 05/18/2022

Severe drought is taking a severe toll on California rice crops this year.

Some call the impact on farmers and the surrounding communities catastrophic.

The California Rice Commission said crops are still being planted but exact numbers would not be known until the end of May.

The Bureau of Reclamation reportedly allocated zero water from Lake Shasta to farmers south of the San Joaquin Delta.

The Northern California Water Association expects the rice industry to lose more than $250 million statewide, including more than $70 million in lost wages.
