Water is essential to everything we do! Our industry strives to continuously find better and more efficient ways to use water:

    • 33% Reduction
      • 33% reduction in the amount of water it takes to grow a pound of almonds over the past two decades¹.
    • 77% Adoption
      • of micro-irrigation and on-demand based irrigation by California almond growers².

We realise that water in California is precious. To further explore reducing our impacts, Blue Diamond Growers has teamed with The Freshwater Trust, a conservation organization that preserves and restores freshwater ecosystems. Over the coming year, in partnership, we are piloting a program to help our growers identify and apply for United States Department of Agriculture conservation grants.
