What the drought in California means for agriculture and one endangered fish, with CNBC's Jane Wells.
A drought in California’s San Joaquin Valley has farmers boiling mad over how much water they should be allowed to draw from the Sacramento Delta.
A court-ordered protection of the Delta smelt, an endangered sliver of a fish, has reduced the amount of water farmers may use to 30 percent of their contracted amount. This means an estimated half million acres could be unplanted next season – the equivalent size of Rhode Island.
Watch the report by CNBC’s Jane Wells (above).
