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.
About the Almond Board
Almonds from California are a natural, wholesome and quality food. The Almond Board of California promotes almonds through its research-based approach to all aspects of marketing, farming and production on behalf of the more than 6,000 almond growers and processors in California, many 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.
