California farmers and growers say they're feeling the affects of the partial government shutdown.

Government agencies have suspended timber harvests in National Forests, and stopped market reports. Now, farmers say they will see delays in conservation and marketing programs -- among other services.

Farm groups say the impact on California farmers could be greater depending on how long the shutdown lasts.
