fornia’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) is creating uncertainty in agriculture especially for lenders and investors. Increased regulation on groundwater means that the financial health of farming operations can be threatened, and the loans acquired to keep that farm growing may be at risk of default.
