California’s agricultural economy is in decline, and the nation is on the verge of another, according to a report released Monday.
The report from the U.S. Census Bureau says California is home to more than 8 million people and more than 30 million farms.
The vast majority of the nation’s farmers are small-scale, with less than 100 acres or less than 5,000 people.
The study says that rural America is struggling because of an influx of cheap, foreign-grown food.
The West Coast is especially hard hit, the report says, with fewer than 2 million people in the state.
It cites California’s almond-growing farms as a prime example of how California’s farmers have become so dependent on imported food that they’re increasingly unable to adapt to local conditions.
The state is home not only to the almond and pistachio farms, but also to a huge number of small-holder farming communities.
California’s agricultural sector is struggling, according the report.

Farmers in the Sierra Nevada Mountains have seen a significant drop in their output since the 1980s.
The region has lost nearly 1.6 million farmers, according California Farm Bureau Federation President Richard Pecora.
The agency estimates that more than 40 percent of California’s agriculture sector is now located in urban areas.
The West Coast also has seen a decline in the number of farms.
California has more than 11 million farmers.
In 2016, the state produced about 5.2 million tons of crops, according The Oregonian/OregonLive.
That’s up from about 4.7 million in 2015.
The industry’s overall output is expected to grow slightly this year.
The report found that the percentage of farmers in California that are small has dropped from 62 percent in 1980 to about 60 percent today.
That could be a factor in why California’s economy is so dependent.
The state has more land available for farming than any other state, with about 17.5 million acres.
The USDA says it is also producing more food for the population than it is importing.
But the report doesn’t say how much California imports.
It notes that the U,S.
imports about 40 percent more than it exports, and about one-third of that difference is food.
