California citrus industry tour

From a tour east of Tulare arranged through the World Ag Expo in February, with lots to see: juice manufacturing, a producer-owned packing cooperative, labor and contracting arrangements for harvest workers, irrigation, pest pressure, and strange windmills that run in reverse (they use power to blow wind through the fields on cold nights to protect against frost).  Plus, lovely countryside.
