As almond growers continue to work their way through limited water supplies, University of California Cooperative Extension Farm Advisor David Doll says while yields will come back after limited irrigation years, it will take several seasons.
Doll says research has shown some interesting relationships between water, canopy and yield.
Doll is one of several speakers at the upcoming Almond Conference. Topics at the conference include many facets of water – including irrigation, groundwater, regulations and more. There are also sessions on food safety, pesticides, bee health and many others. For the full schedule and to register online, head to almondconference.com.
