Continued strong exports are essential to California’s almond industry
Almond Board |

“We’re anticipating a fairly significant increase in production in the next three to five years,” said Julie Adams, vice president of global, technical and regulatory affairs for the Almond Board of California. High-value commodities continue to be the crop of choice in California, which is seeing additional almond tree plantings and greater efficiency in production. Almonds are the No. 1 specialty crop export in the U.S. and California’s No. 1 ag export. The state grows 100 percent of U.S. almonds and accounts for 80 percent of global production. California’s almond exports were valued at about $4.5 billion in 2015. Exports continue to be a “very significant” opportunity for California almonds, and growers invest quite a bit in marketing programs in many countries, Adams said. “We’re seeing a lot of growth in virtually all our overseas markets,” she said. Any disruption in exports makes it difficult for customers who rely on California almonds and difficult for the industry. Such was the case in the port slowdown two years ago, she said.
