Progress in Research
–Mel Machado, Environmental Research Committee

One of the strongest features of our industry is the legacy of research that we have created. The research programs funded by the Almond Board have improved productivity in the orchard while helping California Almond growers use resources more efficiently and minimize environmental impacts. Research on the nutritional aspects of almond consumption has also helped to increase consumer demand for products.

Each year, almond growers have the opportunity to come together to learn about the latest research efforts. This year’s Almond Conference will be held Dec. 3–5 at the Sacramento Convention Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the latest information on the management of nitrogen fertilizers, pollination and pollinators, irrigation management, pest management and sustainability.

This year’s conference will also present the latest news on the federal Food Safety Modernization Act and the California Almond industry’s efforts to drive global demand. In addition to the formal presentations, attendees will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the researchers to explore solutions to the issues they face in managing their operations.

I invite all industry members to Sacramento to take advantage of this unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of our great industry.

Sincerely,
Mel Machado, Chairman
Environmental Research Committee
