Pistachio Production: Evolving Water-Usage In Orchards

Pistachio trees are one of the most valuable crops grown in California’s Central Valley. With so much value, it is not hard to find a pistachio orchard while driving up and down Highway 99 or Interstate 5. Despite so many acres being dedicated to pistachio farming, pistachios are actually not native to California, they are native to the Middle East, a far cry from Fresno and Kern Counties.

Pistachios first made an appearance in the United States in the 1930’s, with increased development starting after 1960. Now, across many acres of California’s “Westside” you will easily see pistachio orchards ranging from 100 to 2,000 acres, varying in age from 7 months to 17 years.

Coming off a record setting year, the pistachio industry is primed to continue expansion.  

In this session, you will learn:

  1. Common irrigation methods used in pistachio irrigation systems today.
  2. Water and Yield efficient products widely used today.
  3. Reviewing new and innovative research, products, and technologies readily available to help you maximize you “Crop Per Drop”.
