This is a video [6:25 min] about growing almonds on a property in the Riverland of South Australia and why the owners switched from citrus to almond production. The first part of the video illustrates the characteristics of the property and explains the long-term strategy and business reasons for the switch. The next part shows how the labour of almond production is managed and the crop harvested. The operation and value of the almond growers’ cooperative Almondco are then presented in some detail. The video concludes with the owner identifying his major production costs and pointing to the industry and national imperative to expand further in the massive almond markets of India and China.
