Our Australian orchards comprise 4 million trees across 15,000 hectares in Victoria and southern New South Wales. Predominantly we grow non pareil and the pollinator varieties: Carmel and Price.
In California, our 4,500 hectares of almond orchards produce mainly Non Pareil and Carmel varieties, however we also grow Sonoa, Buttes and Monterrey almonds. Aside from our own farms, our Fresno ofice trades more than 55 million lbs of kernal annually.
In all of our orchads our technical services and agronomy teams support tree health. We use data from tree sensors, drip line flow, soil and weather predictions to track growth and identify issues. These systems allow us to plan irrigation, making oir operations more sustainable.
We are committed to creating quality pollinator habitats. Adjacent to our Fresno orchads we have planted nearly six miles of hedgegrows, combined with wildflowers to cultivate bee friendly habitats. We work with the Almond Industry Boards of both Australia and California and participate in industry-wide sustainability initiatives.
We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and supporting the communities where we operate. This includes investing in state-of-the-art irrigation systems and creating pollinator habitats. We are also working with the Almond Industry Boards of both Australia and California to participate in industry-wide sustainability initiatives.
