Pistachio Farming Comes to Kingman
I have personally thousands of acres to local nut and row crop farmers. They are all testing to see what grows out here. So far almonds have not done well. This year we had record heat and possible root rot disease that has killed off about 90% of the almond trees, so much that the remaining trees are being pulled out of the ground and being replaced with Pistachio's.
I can't help but think that these two sections located 35 miles north of Kingman just past the large Red Lake bed are just a test plot for Paramount. It would be nothing for them to plant these sections and see what happens. If it proves to work out then they will continue planting and purchasing more land in our area. If it fails they can pull their labor and equipment back to California.
