California agriculture, economy hit hard by drought

This week, experts from UC Davis released a study showing the devastating impacts of the state drought on California’s economy, with the study projecting a loss of $2.2 billion and more than 17,000 jobs in the nation’s number one agriculture state.

The full study is available here, with a synopsis available here.

With so many of our Morrison clients coming from the California agriculture industry, we have kept a close eye on the drought and the implications for the businesses we serve. According to the study, about 5% of the state’s irrigated cropland is out of production.
