There is a lot of talk about El Nino weather conditions on the horizon this fall. That weather could bring precipitation to California, and new reports come out daily that say the amount of rain could be substantial. California has seen dry conditions for several years now, and a lot more land is bare and dried out completely. Some experts are concerned that too much rain, too fast, will mean widespread runoff and erosion across the state.
Cooperative Extension San Luis Obispo County Director Mary Bianchi says growers need to start thinking about those possibilities and try to protect some vulnerable areas on their land.
