Our scientists are engaged in wide-ranging efforts to address California’s severe drought. This work is helping the state’s fruit and vegetable farmers stretch limited water supplies, rangeland cattle ranchers in need of management information, and urban dwellers seeking water-saving landscape ideas. Other scientists are monitoring the impact of the critical water shortage on our environment. Here are some examples of what we’re doing to make every drop count.
Ranchers will be immediately impacted by severe drought, and most face lack of forage.
