Almond Crop

Recommendations for Almond fertilization

Trees are planted in rectangular or hexagonal arrangements, with separate rows of pollinators and main cultivars, usually alternating with each other (US description). Solid rows of pollinators are used since trees are shake harvested, and this makes it easier to harvest without mixing cultivars. In some orchards, two different pollinators are used, generally one blooming slightly before and the other slightly after the main cultivar. The spacing must be wide enough to permit movement of harvesting equipment, or about 5.5 meters.
