Farm Labor Tight But
Bryan Little, Director of
Labor Affairs, California Farm Bureau Federation( CFBF) in Sacramento, noted
that labor is short, about the same as it was last season.
He said that between 60 and
70 percent of the farmers who voluntarily enter data on the CFBF website cited
that they were experiencing about a 30 percent shortage of farm labor.
“Growers are getting by again
this year, however they have been helped by weather conditions that have spread
out the harvest season of several crops, including raisins,” Little said.
