Cleaner Air for All

Air quality in the Central Valley of California is a prime focus of the almond industry, especially for growers in the San Joaquin Valley. The state's almond industry is addressing the concerns about air emissions generated by almond production practices with research funded by growers through the Almond Board of California and working in partnership with the University of California, Texas A&M, CSU Fresno, USDA-ARS, the public and government regulators.

Air District Rolls Out Next Round of Tractor/Loader Incentive Monies

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District has announced the next round of incentive funds for the replacement of tractors and loaders will open on October 15, 2012.  This program provides incentives for replacement of in-use, off-road tractors that are engaged in agricultural operations as defined by the California Air Resources Board.  Eligible equipment includes but is not limited to wheel loaders, balers, combines, graders or tractors.  Funding amounts are based on a dollar per horsepower table as determined by the horsepower of the engine in the new tractor, not to exceed 80% of the eligible costs.  Average reimbursement is around 50%.   This program will be different than last year’s program in that it is now first come, first served and will be funded on a continuous basis year round.  As money becomes available, more tractors will be funded.  To obtain an application please visit the Air District’s website at The application and guidelines are also posted on our website at
