BAKERSFIELD - Central Valley citrus growers are protesting a recent water allocation bump by the state, saying they will not see a drop of it.
The California Department of Water Resources increased water deliveries to farmers from zero to 5 percent, but it only applies north of Fresno.
Kern County citrus grower John Gless says next year's season is in jeopardy.
"Do we try to just keep what we have alive and not set a crop knowing we're not going to have any crop for next year, or put all our water in certain areas?" said Gless.
Gless said he might have to let hundreds of citrus trees died just so he can keep a small 60-acre grove alive.
