Caption: Almond trees being irrigated in California's Central Valley, which is in the grip of a four year long drought. The catastrophic drought means that no crops will grow without increasingly scarce irrigation water. Many areas of farmland have been abandoned due to the drought. 80% of the world's almonds grow in California, each Almond takes 1 gallon of water to produce, water that is increasingly unavailable.
