Drought threatens Calif. agriculture business

Three years of drought are threatening to destroy California farmers, and the state's multi-billion dollar agriculture industry. News of a smaller snowpack than usual doesn't improve the dry situation in the usually fertile Central Valley. That means farmers can't expect to see more water for their crops. It's heartbreaking to see the area that supplies 40% of the nation's food supply vanishing, with farmers refusing to plant or just ripping up their crops. Without more water, California's $37 billion dollar agricultural industry is on the line. Empty fields have cost thousands of jobs, with the unemployed pressuring Sacramento to solve the problem. Consumers will feel it next. "It's going to dramatically impact the supply of food, the cost of food and the availability of food."
