Almond Industry and Sustainable Conservation Launch New Partnership to Explore Almond Acreage Groundwater Recharge Potential
Oct. 26, 2015
MODESTO, Calif., Oct. 26, 2015 -- The Almond Board of California and Sustainable Conservation, a conservation nonprofit that unites people to steward California's resources in ways that make economic sense, today announced a new partnership focused on exploring the potential of California's one million acres of almond orchards for groundwater recharge. The partnership launches just as California is entering a much-anticipated El Niño year, which could bring an exceptionally wet winter. Groundwater recharge returns water to underground aquifers, collectively California's largest water storage system, through managed flooding with seasonal floodwaters.

The Almond Board of California (ABC) will join with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and other partners in carrying out a new USDA-funded pilot project designed to give both almond and corn growers greater access to greenhouse gas markets like those under California’s cap-and-trade program.
Almond Orchard Sustainability Lifecycle Study Highlights Greenhouse Gas Benefits, Provides Baseline for Future Goals
Jul. 22, 2015
MODESTO, Calif., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, independent study by the University of California, Davis shows that re-using byproducts from producing and harvesting almonds is key to the industry's environmental impact and further reducing carbon emissions. The research, funded in part by a grant from the Almond Board of California, shows that almond trees accumulate and store significant amounts of carbon and that the almond industry is making progress toward becoming carbon neutral or even carbon negative with respect to greenhouse gases (GHG).
