Almond crop California could be the third largest on record

California’s almond crop is forecast up this year, potentially becoming the third largest on record.

USDA agricultural economist Catherine Weber stated: “California’s 2023 almond production on a shelf basis is forecast at 2.6 billion pounds, up 1% from last season’s crop. If realized, 2023 almond production would be the third largest on record behind 2020 and 2021. While water availability was a minor concern this year, unseasonably cold temperatures and stormy weather conditions during almond bloom negatively impacted pollination. While the preliminary 2023 yield estimate is down 1% from last year, fairing acres are estimated to reach a record-breaking 1.38 million, a 30,000-acre increase from 2022,” said

As is well-known, California is the sole producer of almonds for the US, providing 80 percent of the world almond supply.
