Heat and Harvest: Climate Change and California's Farms

at 9:00 AM
 (Craig Miller/KQED)

From citrus groves to tomato fields, California is home to a $30 billion agricultural industry. But rising temperatures and lower water levels, which some attribute to climate change, are hitting crops hard. The cherry industry alone lost $22 million last year. How are these changes affecting our farmers? We get an overview of the new documentary "Heat and Harvest," a co-production of KQED and the Center for Investigative Reporting.

Guests:

Craig Miller, KQED Science editor, host and co-reporter for "Heat and Harvest"

Mark Schapiro, correspondent for the Center for Investigative Reporting/California Watch which co-produced "Heat and Harvest"

John Trumble, professor of entomology at UC Riverside

Barat Bisabri, managing partner at Shiraz Ranch, a farm in Stanislaus County where they grow almonds, olives, pomegranates and other citrus fruits
