KNOE) - A local nut supplier says walnuts are falling short in Louisiana and other southern states due to drought. Fowler also said that even though there is a shortage this holiday season, customers can still keep the products. The uniqueness of the store's nuts and variety of flavors is what keeps loyal customers coming back for more. As an alternative to returning the survey by mail and to save time and money, producers will have the option to answer the survey securely online through the respondent portal at agcounts, usda, gov.
A NASS representative will contact producers who haven't responded by September 29 for a telephone or in-person interview. The UGA and Hall County schools are partnering in a dual enrollment program. With China's re-entry into the market and producers shipping more nuts to China and South Korea, the prices of nuts on farms have held up well. The work has been prosperous, as American nut producers have seen demand for walnuts increase in recent years, even in the face of a trade war and a global pandemic.
While cold storage of nuts remains a priority, demand for nuts will, of course, be the primary factor in keeping buyers uninterrupted in the supply chain.
