FROM THIS EPISODE

Though California produces more than half of America's fruits and vegetables, its richest agricultural land is being lost to urban development. Farmers, hit with rising costs and foreign competition, convert equity into funds, then sell farms as profits continue to fall. Should the government help? Would consumers pay more for produce labeled "California grown"? Would that be enough to help farmers? We'll hear about a farm "assistance" bill currently in the state Assembly, then discuss the problems and prospects for California agriculture with an urban planner, and organic and traditional growers.
