Plums orchard management

Published in Plum

Opportunities to manage trees which produce crops soon after the trees have been planted, and which crop well and give quick returns, have stimulated interest in high density orchards for plums.
The emphasis in the manuals is to: • Achieve a full and efficient tree canopy at an early tree age • Sustain optimum fruit production over the projected life of the orchard • Produce fruit of high quality • Use equipment and labour efficiently.
