Endangered 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.
