Abstract

California farms and allied industries supply food and other farm products to consumers all over the United States and the world. At the same time California agriculture relies on equipment, supplies and technology imported from many sources, while California consumers rely on imported foods, flowers, and other farm products. International connections permeate economic relationships in California agriculture. While new agreements can achieve additional gains from trade, there is also much to lose from destabilizing current agreements.
