How Bad is the Drought in the Western US in 2021?

2021 is looking like a continuation of one of the worst geographical droughts in the last 20 years, with 80% of the Western U.S. in drought and nearly 1/2 in "extreme" or "exceptional" drought.

This is the first of a series of podcasts focused on drought, its challenges and strategies that can help growers and crop advisors manage through drought conditions. 

In this episode, William Bourdeau joins us to help us understand the severity of the drought in California. William is an EVP at Harris Farms, Director of Westlands Water District, and Chairman of the California Water Alliance.
