Crops in a desert with drought

Editor, Index-Tribune:

In response to your editorial (“Boehner vs. fish and Delta farms,” Jan. 24), I want to point out that each farming region of California is unique. What you grow depends upon your water supply, climate and soil types. Drought exacerbates the problems caused by trying to put permanent crops in a desert far from the water source. Thanks for the opportunity to comment.
