The challenge

California almond production has been the focus of recent media scrutiny because of the large amount of water required. With almond acreage doubling in the last two decades and becoming California’s most extensive irrigated crop, we work with our members to increase the uptake of improved water management tools to drive water savings and sustainability.

Objectives

  • Demonstrate the return of investment and thereby improve grower uptake of innovative water management tools to help ensure long term supply of almonds from a growing area.
