The PBA represents members' interests on issues at the state and federal levels. Members also have an effective channel for input on industry issues and promotion programs.
Members have access to current market information and in-depth industry analysis that would be difficult for growers to acquire and compile on their own. The PBA publishes newsletters and special reports regarding crop, market, and industry trends.
On request, the PBA office provides analysis and assistance with P-1 grade sheets, tracking of orchard performance, computation of optimum crop load based on orchard history, and fruit sampling at reference date or harvest to predict average size count.
