California’s almond acreage grew 7 percent last year to a record 1.3 million acres, as the state continued its dominance as the world’s leading producer of almonds.
The state grows more than 80 percent of the world’s supply. In 2016, California’s almond crop was valued at more than $5 billion.
Of the state’s total almond acres, 1 million acres are producing almonds and 330,000 acres of trees are still maturing, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s almond acreage report.
The report shows that five counties in the San Joaquin Valley – Kern, Fresno, Stanislaus, Merced and Madera – grow more almonds than any other county in the state.
