Last year was California's driest on record, and we are now facing what could be a third straight year of drought. Ranchers are selling cattle they can't feed and growers are leaving fields unplanted. And because California is the nation's top agricultural producer, food prices could soar nationwide.

Our next issue will feature a research perspective on water efficiency as well as a look at new UC ANR research to help growers, ranchers and home gardeners use less water and get the most out of the water they do use. Topics will include using recycled water to irrigate Napa vineyards and how the variability of recycled water affects soil salinity in the Salinas Valley.
