Optimize your nutrient, water management

Growers are encouraged to reference the Almond Board’s latest resource, the Nitrogen Best Management Practices.

As almond kernels begin to grow, it’s important that trees receive the appropriate amount of resources to support that growth.

From nutrient perspective, growers are encouraged to reference ABC’s latest resource – the Nitrogen Best Management Practices – for information on how to achieve efficient, environmentally sound and profitable nitrogen fertilization while remaining compliant with the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program.

Growers may visit to view and download a digital copy of the Nitrogen Best Management Practices.

Of similar importance is the need to efficiently irrigate. To help growers best manage their water resources, the Almond Board is heavily investing in research and outreach to help growers conserve water while optimizing production and tree health, as well as the protection of ground- and surface-water from potential runoff or leaching of grower inputs.
