Sector Profile: Agriculture, Water and Environmental Technologies
The agriculture, water, and environmental technologies sector is critical to the South Central Coast, generating billions of dollars each year in revenue. This region is one of the most fertile farming regions in the state and nation. Grapes, strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower and citrus are key crops. The region's coastal location has also given rise to a new trend - the export of fruits and vegetables both domestically, and overseas.
