Abstract

California producers comprise a large share of the market for many perennial specialty crops, so supply changes in California have a large effect on market prices. We look at the impacts of ever-increasing California supplies of walnuts and almonds and discuss possible grower risk-management strategies and industry strategies to expand demand to match higher supplies.

Keywords
