This UC-sponsored California Colloquium on Water features Juliet Christian-Smith of the Pacific Institute and Dr. David Zoldoske of CSU Fresno's Center for Irrigation Technology.

California agriculture is totally dependent on irrigation!

This is the issue that will bite California: we're out of balance by millions of acrefeet and overdrawing the aquifer.

Preemptive actions are needed.

California's Mediterranean climate has rain in the winter, and little water in the summer. Droughts are longer in California.

California agriculture includes $25 billion at the farm gate, plus value added revenue of 2 or 3x that amount.

Definitions:
Evapotranspiration - the amount plants use and evaporated in the air.

Irrigation Efficiency - Beneficial to the crop and what's applied to the field.

Basin Efficiency - all the water districts in a watershed.

Almonds use 4 acre feet in a year for a crop.
Agland conversion to urban use - 1 acrefoot supports family of 4 for one year.
