      The rice harvest for has begun. This is drone footage over Montna Farms near Yuba City. Most of California’s rice production is in the Sacramento Valley, north of Sacramento.   Rice and alfalfa fields occupy hundreds of square miles of the Valley floor, and deep-plowed fruit orchards mass in closely packed ranks beside the rivers. The Sacramento and its tributaries are hidden behind miles of high levees, massive in their bulk, which have made a Holland of the Sacramento Valley.
