Importance of Ag
On Oct. 3, local businesses and ag entities were part of an event in an
alfalfa field, west of Firebaugh in Fresno County. The goal of the event was to
show how important an alfalfa crop is to the economy of a local community. It
highlighted everything involved in producing a field of alfalfa from
fertilizers to PCAs to the milk produced by the cows who will eat the alfalfa.
The impact of not producing an alfalfa field due to a zero water allocation
next year is highlighted in the video, which was produced by the California
Farm Water Coalition.
Be sure to watch the video link to see how the agriculture community came
together to obtain this wonderful visual of the many businesses affected by ag.
