Almond growers vote to continue marketing order

October 09, 2019

Ninety-five percent of eligible almond growers who voted in a referendum held Aug. 5-16, 2019, favored continuing the marketing order. Those voting in favor of continuation also represented 97 percent of the volume produced by those voting. For the marketing order to continue, two-thirds of the growers voting in the referendum, or growers representing two-thirds of the volume of almonds represented in the referendum, had to vote in favor of the marketing order.
