The Almond Production Manual (which replaces Almond Orchard Management) provides background information on all stages of almond production, from planting and developing new orchards to managing bearing orchards and harvesting and handling the crop. The manual presents “how-to” information that is practical and suited for field application as well as technical background information on almond production. Although this publication contains material presented at the Almond Short Course held in Davis, California, in 1994, this book is meant as a stand alone publication that covers all aspects of almond growing.
Over 50 different University of California staff members helped write this publication, including farm advisors, Extension specialists, and researchers from Pomology and other departments in the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources as well as researchers from the United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service.
