The Start Of The 2012 Crop Year

By: ray.perry : April 03, 2012

This month we are working on making our operation more efficient, both economically and environmentally. We are taking/analyzing water samples and soil samples in March and April to better understand the soil structure and nutrient needs of the pistachio trees. This will help us tailor our fertilizer to the exact needs of the trees, limiting any over fertilization and excess costs. The soil samples will also help us understand how efficiently the irrigation water moves through the soil, targeting the feeder roots of the trees.
