Within California’s almond industry, the sufficiency of water and its efficient use is a constant area of focus. After all, almond trees are permanent crops which cannot survive without water year to year, a fact exacerbated in periods of drought.
It comes down to two choices: go nuts, if you will, worrying over water or do something creative to improve water efficiency.
