Agricultural Water Conservation and Efficiency Potential in California

Pacific Institute, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) | June 10th, 2014

Agriculture uses about 80 percent of California’s developed water supply. As such a large user, it is heavily impacted by the availability and reliability of California’s water resources.  Agriculture can also play an important role in helping the state achieve a more sustainable water future. The challenge is to transition to an agricultural sector that supplies food and fiber to California and the world and supports rural livelihoods and long-term sustainable water use.
