Soil and nutrition

Our industry approach

Balanced tree nutrition is essential for healthy tree growth and consistent nut production. Nutrient management strategies aim to apply adequate nutrients to meet seasonal tree demands. Seasonal tree demands for each nutrient varies depending on the role each nutrient plays in specific plant processes. Understanding plant demands and the mobility of elements in the soil and plant helps to optimise fertiliser inputs; maximise yields and crop quality; avoid nutrient toxicity and deficiency disorders; and minimise nutrient losses to the environment.
