Project Description:
This project will describe and measure the role of the California almond industry in the economy of local regions, California and the nation. This description will include measures of farm and processor inputs, farm and processor employment, contracted production services, taxes, fees, permit costs, philanthropic contributions and community engagement as well as other economic measures. Project results will help answer the question: what would be the broad impacts on the economy from changes in the California almond industry?
