Species and the
California Almond Industry
At present, there are more than 350 species in California
that either have been formally listed or have been proposed for endangered or
threatened status. In almonds, 25
endangered, threatened or candidate species have been identified by the
California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR).
About 15-20 crop protection chemicals used in almonds have been, or are
scheduled for, endangered species impact evaluations by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA.)
The current roster of products
include many of the insecticides and miticides needed in almond production.
