A new tool has come to the rescue of California farmers, with the state setting up an agricultural checkpoint where they can cross a highway to get food, water and fuel, with an added bonus: You can also take pictures.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture (DFA) is using the new system to set-up a checkpoint near the city of Long Beach, the state’s third busiest city.
The checkpoint is a first for California, where farmers are required to obtain a permit from the state to operate their operations in the state.
Farmers who want to cross the state border from Los Angeles into the state can register online for a permit and then take it to the border crossing, which will let them enter the state legally.
Farm farmers who already have permits will need to take an additional trip to the state for their permit.
This new system, known as the California Agricultural Passport, was introduced in 2018 and allows farmers to cross a state highway from Los Angeles to Long Beach and then use the road to cross to another state, like California.
The farmers will need an additional permit and will need a vehicle that meets the required minimum number of seats.
The permit allows farmers and their families to enter California without needing to buy a permit, and it allows them to cross state lines without having to purchase a permit.
Farmers who already hold a permit will have to pay for it once they have crossed.
This system allows farmers in California to cross borders legally.
But the new California Agricultural Portal has been criticized by California’s agriculture industry.
“California agricultural producers are already getting paid by the truckload to cross our state border,” said Kevin O’Sullivan, president of the California Farm Bureau Federation.
“This is not the kind of technology we want in California.
It’s not fair to the farmers.”
Agricultural groups have argued that the new permit system will cause a backlog in the system and could hurt the state economy.
“If we can’t have this right now, we’re going to have this problem,” said Paul Vincenzetti, president and CEO of the Farm Bureau.
“It’s a bad system that will be a nightmare for farmers.”
The system has been controversial.
A recent poll from the California Association of Farm Bureau Members found that 75 percent of respondents supported the system, but only 37 percent supported farmers who needed to have permits for their operations.
The poll also found that only 35 percent of farmers supported the new technology.
The DFA defended the new systems by saying that it will allow farmers to “access vital commodities and products while also avoiding the congestion, traffic, and cost of obtaining permits.”
“The system we’re working on will make it easier for farmers to do their jobs while maintaining public safety,” said DFA Chief Operating Officer Brian Miller.
“We’ve seen tremendous success with this technology with California farmers who need permits to enter and cross the border, so this new technology is a welcome addition to the existing system.”
The Department of Agriculture also said the new agricultural portal will reduce traffic on highways and allow more farmers to get supplies and equipment to market.
The new system is not yet in place, but farmers who register online will be able to get a license to enter the border at the beginning of July.
