San Diego Farmers Find Innovative Solutions to Climate Change Problems

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – San Diego County farmers are finding innovative solutions to problems brought on by climate change. “It’s getting hotter and drier, and we’re in longer, more frequent droughts,” says Al Stehly, who manages 15 farms in the North County. “So we have to use the water we do have better.” Stehly says water is the biggest concern as temperatures rise. “It’s just going to get hotter and drier,” he says. “So we’ve got to squeeze everything out of that sponge that we can without depleting the resource.”
