It’s been a different winter for almond growers this season. What started out to be a dry turned in some growers needing to apply water for frost protection, followed by heavy rains. Almond Board of California’s Senior Manager of Irrigation and Water Efficiency Spencer Cooper said irrigation timing will be a little different this year depending on your location and monitoring is the best way to tell when that needs to start.
The Almond Board of California has an irrigation calculator growers can use and there are upcoming workshops for producers. Head to Almonds.com for more information.
