Water & Irrigation

California’s limited water supply is a reality for almond growers and agriculture as a whole. To help growers best manage their water resources, the Almond Board of California is heavily investing in resources to help growers conserve water while optimizing production and tree health, as well as the protection of ground- and surface-water from potential runoff or leaching of grower inputs.
