On average, California agriculture irrigates more than 9 million acres using roughly 34 million acre-feet of water typically diverted from surface waters – rivers, lakes, and reservoirs that deliver water through an extensive network of aqueducts and canals – or pumped from groundwater.

In fact, California is the only producer of 13 commodities and is a top producer of more than 74 different commodities in the U.S. The state exports a huge quantity of agricultural products, bringing more than $20 billion into California’s economy. CaliFornia’s Farms FaCe groWing Water management hallengesC California is an agricultural powerhouse—the nation’s largest farm state and a world market leader, with sales of $48 billion.

California’s dry summers make irrigation essential. To irrigate more than nine million acres of crops, farmers use about 40 percent of California.

Water plays a substantial and vital role in California’s agricultural sector. Given the long-term challenges facing California water and the short-term crisis imposed by the ongoing severe drought, policy makers, journalists, researchers, and the public have been clamoring for up-to-date data and information on agricultural production and water.

Water use can be further divided into beneficial and non-beneficial uses. Beneficial uses in agriculture include those that contribute to crop production and quality, including crop transpiration and water used to leach salts from the root zone. Underlying the encyclopedic scope of “Cadillac Desert” are two basic themes.

First, the settlers lured to the arid West by the railroads and the US Federal Government in the 19th century needed cheap water to support agriculture on their acre parcels of land, and also for Cited by:   Water in California is shared across three main sectors.

Statewide, average water use is roughly 50% environmental, 40% agricultural, and 10% urban, although the percentage of water use by sector varies dramatically across regions and between wet and dry years.

California is the nation’s largest farm state and a global market leader. Farms have steadily improved productivity per unit of water used, but the latest drought has exposed agriculture’s growing vulnerability to water shortages.

This brief describes a number of opportunities to strengthen agricultural water management for the long term. Water discharges from agricultural operations in California include irrigation runoff, flows from tile drains, and storm water runoff. These discharges can affect water quality by transporting pollutants, including pesticides, sediment, nutrients, salts (including selenium and boron), pathogens, and heavy metals, from cultivated fields into surface waters.
