Hello, Growers

Coping with drought is a challenge for all California Almond growers, but there are some simple principles that will help manage this limited resource more efficiently. An important principle to follow if water supplies are severely restricted is to spread out available water over the season in proportion to almond crop evapotranspiration (ETc). Instructions for calculation and using ETc, and reminders about saving water for late-season application, are available in recent articles of California Almonds Outlook.
