Napa conference focuses on conserving farmland
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A conference is taking place this week to discuss conservation of farmland around the state.
Ag officials say conserving farmland helps assure food production to sustain a growing population. But maintaining California farmland has become quite a challenge.
