US-agriculture-drought-climate-ALMONDS

Dead almond trees lie in an open field after they were removed by a farmer because of a lack of water to irrigate them, in Huron, California, a town in the drought-stricken Central Valley, on July 23, 2021. - "It's heartbreaking": almond trees lying on their sides in the middle of Daniel Hartwig's farm. Distraught by a devastating drought and new water restrictions, the Californian farmer had no choice but to uproot 150 hectares (371 acres) of his "premium" trees. Under the yellowed and curled leaves of these ghostly almond trees, small brownish hulls are visible. This year's crop, if the water had finally arrived.
