Flood Prepare CA 2017 Agriculture Video


(light music) – [Narrator] Whether
you live in a big city or in rural California, our
state’s agricultural lands are important to all of us. The rural lands that provide us with our food security
are just as vulnerable to catastrophic flooding as urban areas. We are the nation’s supermarket, growing more than 400
different kinds of fruits and vegetables. Floods expose crops to
crippling bacteria and diseases, which can impact the Golden
State’s $47 billion Ag industry and raise food prices. Farmers, land owners, local
agencies, and the state work together to protect our
valuable farm land from damage. Smart state-wide flood
planning has big benefits for farmland and the environment, and that’s good for every Californian. Be flood wise. Be flood ready. Learn more at floodprepareca.com.
