EDITOR'S LETTER
Welcome to 2024!
I
hope all of you enjoyed the
holiday season and some
well-deserved time off. I know
last year's wild weather growers
experienced, especially during
the first quarter 2023, placed
some additional pressure on tree
nut growers across the country,
especially on the West Coast. I
hope that this new year brings ideal
weather conditions, great health and
successful harvests.
This time of year, I know you are
Debbie Eisele
Editorial Director
busy with sanitization and orchard
prep for the upcoming growing season, and thought it would be
nice to take a look at sustainability efforts and practices, page
10. Plus, learn how one pistachio grower is successfully utilizing
byproducts and waste control to help with operations and crop
production, page 18.
Last year, honeybees struggled in California during almond
bloom due to the cold, windy and wet weather conditions. Turn
to page 14 to get more information on honeybees and the latest
challenges facing this incredible pollinator. Additionally, this issue
takes a look at BeeHero and the technology used to help provide
pertinent data to the growers and beekeepers, page 6.
Also, business matters are important and this issue offers the
second article in the succession planning series. Turn to page 22
to learn more about how to enact a solid plan for the future.
Also, late in 2023, we learned more about a new pest, so be sure
to read about Carpophilus truncatus on page 12.
As always, we welcome your feedback - send me an email to let
me know what content you would like to see more of in 2024!

If you are attending the 2024 American Pistachio Growers
Annual Conference and want to arrange a time to meet, please

successes and challenges.
Best wishes,
