Almond Board Serves Up Almond Stewardship at DPR Brown Bag Lunch
From left, almond grower Nick Gatzman, DPR Director Brian
Leahy, and the Almond Board’s Gabriele Ludwig and Bob
Curtis spoke about almond environmental stewardship at
DPR’s Brown Bag luncheon meeting for regulators in
November.

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) in November invited almond industry members to speak at its regular “Brown Bag Luncheon” for regulators about almond production and what the industry is doing to be good environmental stewards.

About 30 representatives from Cal EPA, DPR, the Air Resources Board and other regulatory agencies were in the audience at Cal EPA headquarters in Sacramento, including Gordon Burns, California’s undersecretary for environmental protection.

Almond grower and Almond Board Environmental Research Committee member Nick Gatzman took participants through the life cycle of almond trees and production activities from planting to postharvest, while Almond Board’s Bob Curtis and Gabriele Ludwig discussed various environmental, regulatory and production issues facing California Almond growers, and what the Almond Board is doing through research and outreach to help growers navigate those challenges.

A YouTube video of the event has been distributed to county agricultural commissioners and their constituents. It can be viewed here.
