About the Webinar:

“California Ag Land and Water Market Outlook: The Decade Ahead”

The next ten years bear unique challenges and opportunities for water supply management in California’s agricultural heartland. As local agencies begin to implement the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) across the Central Valley and growers continue to manage their water risks through the natural cycles of drought and flood, new realities and approaches are shifting how landowners optimize, invest in, and manage some of the state’s most valuable farmland.

Agriculture in California is big business, producing one-third of the vegetables and two-thirds of the fruit and nuts grown in the entire country. Water supply availability is foundational to this production, as well as farmland value. As demand grows for this increasingly scarce liquid asset, landowners are planning ahead by adjusting on-farm irrigation practices, transitioning crop types, developing local groundwater trading programs, and participating the broader surface water market.

The Webinar features speakers Marc Schuil of Schuil & Associates and Matt Payne of WestWater Research, both of whom share their thoughts on new ways to manage farmland water risk and the decade ahead. The Webinar conversation is hosted by Bryce McAteer of WestWater Research. We hope you enjoyed this vibrant discussion on the decade ahead!
