By John Duarte - - Duarte Nursery was pleased to recently host the Almond Board’s Environmental Stewardship Tour at our nursery facility and a newly-planted family orchard. Taking policymakers and influencers through real agricultural operations and demonstrating the agricultural industry’s commitment to sustainability will benefit growers throughout California. During the tour, we demonstrated sustainable nursery tree production systems that produce almond trees in more sustainable and ecologically friendly ways than ever before. New almond rootstock genetics are helping growers prepare for water scarcity in the future.

Almond Board |
California almonds make life better by what we grow and how we grow. The Almond Board of California promotes natural, wholesome and quality almonds through leadership in strategic market development, innovative research, and accelerated adoption of industry best practices on behalf of the more than 6,800 almond farmers and processors in California, most of whom are multi-generational family operations. Established in 1950 and based in Modesto, California, the Almond Board of California is a non-profit organization that administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture.
