The Department of Agriculture is holding a meeting to help farmers and farmworkers impacted by the drought sign up for much-needed relief programs.

It's one of several meetings around the state hosted by the US Department of Ag, and the California Department of Food and Ag.

The application deadlines are fast-approaching. Information will be provided on state and federal programs, designed to assist farmers with things like water conservation and crop insurance.

Information on farmworker assistance programs will also be available.

The meeting will be held at the Fresno County Farm Bureau, and it begins at 6pm.
