The Issues

California citrus growers pay some of the highest regulatory costs in the Nation. In the past 10 years, regulatory costs have increased 88 percent. Additionally, farming costs have increased exponentially as a result of pest and disease pressures, trade requirements, and rising costs for water.

It is CCM’s mission to advocate on behalf of citrus growers on these issues to enhancing the California citrus industry and create an environment in which our members can farm profitably.
