Irrigating for National Security

Coalition viewpoint...The writer misses a few very important points in this blog, revealing at least a lack of understanding of military operations and at most, a disregard for the safety of our armed forces, even here at home.

The Navy promotes farming operations around Lemoore Naval Air Station for several important reasons.  They require large amounts of open space around a base that focuses on training flight crews. Birds attracted to non-farmed land pose a danger to those flight operations.  Crop growing activities also help the Navy mitigate air quality issues in the region.  Those are important issues for the pilots and for the residents of the surrounding communities.

The writer also demonstrates how sloppy his research and understanding is when he repeatedly refers to the Air Force when, in fact, the facility is a Navy base.  And his assertion that the Air Force can get non-bird crops if they want because, "the air force can kill anyone who disagrees..." is simply ridiculous and irresponsible............

What, exactly, is "corporate agriculture"?  
Is it a large, faceless entity with little regard for people or the environment?  
Not likely.  Click HERE or listen to the radio to meet one of California's "corporate" farmers and learn how family farms make up the backbone of California agriculture.

 

 

Farming in California is as diverse as the people who live here.  Throughout the state, farmers work long hours to bring us the food and fiber we enjoy.  Join us and learn more about farming and the history of agriculture in California. grnrightro.gif
