Plums high density systems

Until now, instructions on how to start and maintain a high density plum orchard were virtually unavailable.

We have put this manual together to give prospective plum growers the latest information on managing three of the most productive orchard systems for plums.

Tree shape, tree spacing, pruning and tree training are cultural practices that the orchardist has control over to influence precocity, production and fruit quality.

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.
