Farming and Agriculture
The drought has affected California's crops a lot. Roughly 80% of the water California uses is used by agriculture. Farms in the Central Valley are getting about two thirds of the river water they normally get. Ground water pumping is being used almost double the amount it used to be. Over 80% of this pumping happens in San Joaquin Valley and Tulare Basin. California is also losing about 25% of its rice crops. Here is an article about how the drought is affecting these $5 billion dollar crops.
