Now this is fascinating. My wife has Epilepsy and she loves almonds. I buy them at BJs Both whole and sliced for her. I can't vouch that they've made any difference in her life but good for you. Seizure activity his very debilitating. What does your neurologist say about this?
While were on almonds I noticed some negativity about the almond growing industry. I've thought the same thing about how much water is used.
They should look at Israel and how they irrigate fruit trees. Each tree is individually watered through individual hoses feeding the root system of each tree. Drip irrigation

Water must cost more. Only then will industry do what you propose. Money talks. The wine grapes are already drip watered and use much less than other crops. New vineyards are planted with drip lines at the same time, that's been standard operating procedure for many years.

Israel has been doing this for decades. Israelite's argue over everything but survival, never saw better team work.
When I was driving north to Haifa I saw citrus groves all irrigated. Everything is grown this way. Strawberries, melons, you name it. Wouldn't be surprised if it was mandated. Looked cool, looked expensive for up front costs but the savings of water. I think it was about 80 - 90%.
I believe they've just finished up a desalinization program. 100% supplied for the country.

Desalinization brings it's own problems.

Like a miracle.
Isaiah 35:
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
