Sites Reservoir is one of the projects that will directly benefit from recent reforms to permitting requirements for water and energy infrastructure projects. A second effort is underway, seeking legislative action to help address the threat that broomrape represents in California. The California Department of Food and Agriculture has opened grant applications for commercial dairies and livestock operations to implement methane emission reduction measures.

The funding will be utilized to expand research in strawberry automation, paving the way for improved sustainable farming practices and workforce development.
