@WesternGrowers Many farmers have been motivated to #mechanize. The severe shortage of #agricultural workers, coupled w/ new #CA regulations regarding minimum wage & overtime will drive up costs, making it harder to compete with operations in Mexico & Central America. https://goo.gl/QjZC5f


@WesternGrowers Farming practices have evolved to grow w/ fewer natural resources & in a way that enhances the environment. #Farmers are the original #environmentalists! @dcameron177 @BowlesFarming @agleader are examples of #conservation gurus: https://goo.gl/y4ZDcR
