SUSTAINABILITY
Getting in the loop
For those who still have the option of burning, they
are, and for a variety of reasons. Though Healthy Soils
grants have helped change the game for some growers,
the financial assistance still doesn't pan out for larger
growers needing to remove bigger acreages in a single
year. However, they're still gearing up and looking for
possible incentives.
" The fact that almond growers have received substantial
WOR funding has been very helpful to growers, " said
Milliron. " It's very expensive to chip and spread those
chips, in addition to removing and moving an orchard. "
The cost can make or break the decision to recycle the
orchard, and grants are nearly a prerequisite in areas that
have more relaxed air regulations, because where there are
lax regulations, there is a slower move to adopt the practice.
The opposite is seen in areas that have stricter regulations
and more incentive options.
Staying on top of the grant and incentive opportunities,
including which programs can work in conjunction with
others, continuing research into other tree nuts - such as
walnuts, currently - and gaining more experience with the
practice industry wide will help move adoption forward.
" It would be very good for our long term economic
sustainability, " Milliron said, " as well as all the
environmental benefits of WOR. "
