Get Higher Returns and Increased Productivity from your Nut Orchards with Drip Irrigation
Nuts are one of the fastest growing segments in farming with the growing awareness of their health benefits across the globe. Nuts also have a longer shelf life which leads to more consistent prices throughout the year. These factors drive more demand, higher prices and expanded investment in new nut orchards.
No matter which type of nut you grow, drip irrigation and micro irrigation are two of the most important strategies you can implement to achieve higher yields, increased productivity and overall success of your nut orchard investment.
But did you know that 60 days of growth determines your yield? Any water stress during this period will result in yield that cannot be recovered outside of this time frame. During this stage of growth, precise irrigation and fertigation is critical, which is why it is important to have an irrigation system that will meet your crops’ water need during this period.
Rivulis offers a wide range of solutions, including surface drip, subsurface drip and micro sprinkler irrigation and can provide you with an irrigation system that ensures sufficient water to your almond, walnut, pistachio, pecan, hazelnut or macadamia nut crops during peak growth periods.
Javier Perales, the CBH Technical Manager at Finca La Gazpia farm in Spain explains why he trusts Rivulis irrigation solutions for their almond orchards and his excitement around Manna Irrigation Intelligence, which will be an important tool to understanding the precise condition of the farm allowing him to manage irrigation accordingly.
