Rural communities face severe impacts from drought and water shortages, according to speakers who addressed the California State Board of Food and Agriculture in Merced Tuesday. Farmers, farmworker organizations and water agency managers said agricultural water cutbacks will hurt food production, jobs and rural economies.
