Value of almond-growing land in the Valley increasing

Farmers have seen record-high revenue stemming from high demand for fruits, nuts and vegetables both in the country and other parts of the world

Demand has been particularly good for almond growers, who produce about 80 percent of the world's almonds.

That growth has prompted a rush for almond-growing land, pushing values even higher than that of citrus, grape or tree fruit land.
