The market for California pistachios has been growing rapidly especially to meet the demand in China. The growing middle class in China has begun to enjoy and buy more and more pistachios. As the only other two countries which grow pistachios, Iran and Syria, are in turmoil, California growers have ramped up their production to meet the demand. According to The Sacramento Bee, the number of acres dedicated to pistachios in California has grown from 100,000 to 240,000 as of 2001 which has more than doubled the number of pistachio acreage in just over 10 years. In addition to the growing demand, there has also been a surge in the price which makes this crop very attractive to farmers making this gamble. Thus farmers are betting that the demand for these green nuts will continue on and hopefully other countries will begin to enjoy these “happy nuts.” With all the new plantings we are expecting to have an increase in demand for low hoppers trailer rentals for the years to come.
