Almonds

Almonds, originally native to southwestern Asia, are a member of the Rosaceae family. Preferring well-drained, deep, loamy soils, almonds can tolerate other types of soil conditions so long as it is well drained. Almond production is 100% dependent upon pollination to be successful—to the degree that adding honeybee hives to orchards has become a common practice. Though grown in seven countries, California produces approximately 80% of the world supply of almonds.

Nut Set

Nut Set

Nut set is categorized as the critical transition period shortly after fertilization as plant processes switch over to nut formation and growth. A successful nut set is integral to a healthy crop at harvest. This process can be improved with the addition of Millerplex®. When nutrients are not available or are deficient in the soil, this can lead to a diminished or reduced set. The translocation and availability of key nutrients can dramatically impact the quality of harvest at the end of the growing cycle. Millerplex provides a balanced package of macronutrients, micronutrients, sea plant extracts, as well as our proprietary Express technology. These all combine to both supply key nutrients but also assist in enhancing the metabolism and translocation occurring within the plant.

Post-Harvest

Post-Harvest

Fertility applications made post-harvest have one key objective, which is to lay the foundation for a successful season the next year. Going into dormancy, perennial crops such as almonds work to develop and store nutrients within their tissue for use the following year. Providing a healthy amount of phosphorus and potassium, Fertigard™ helps to build up nutrient storage in the wood to be available for return bud bloom the next season. This helps to rebuild nutrients that were used up over the course of the growing season.
