Almond Industry Conference

Almond Industry Conference

December 11, 2009

I just got home from the two-day Almond Industry Conference in Modesto, hosted by the Almond Board of California. More than 1800 almond growers and PCAs were there.

There was a trade show with many companies offering supplies and services for growers. Also there were great seminars with many University of California farm advisors and researchers speaking.

Good News: The almond industry is very healthy with Nov. exports hitting a record breaking 146 million pounds up 24 percent over  Nov. 2009.

Prices are increasing for growers as well. 2010 should be another good year for the almond industry!
