Tulare, California - "I am honored to represent the State of California and the California Department of Food and Agriculture at this year’s World Ag Expo, one of the premier events of its kind in the country. The Expo represents a unique opportunity to build local and global partnerships, showcase innovation, and present new technologies, products and equipment.
"The Expo is also an opportunity to discuss and tackle some of the industry’s biggest challenges, including the severe drought conditions impacting California and other Western states. Last month, Governor Brown declared a state of emergency, and while we can’t make it rain, we’re committed to working day-in and day-out with our local and federal partners to help our agricultural community – farmers, ranchers and farmworkers." ~ Karen Ross, California Agriculture Secretary
