Today, the states of California, Arizona, and New Mexico represent 100 percent of the U.S. commercial pistachio production.
California comprises 99 percent of the total, with over 312,000 acres planted throughout 22 counties. Pistachios contribute $1.6 billion to the California economy.
As winters get warmer and summers drier, more and more growers are moving to Pistachios. In addition to their ability to survive droughts and adapt to saltier water is contributing to the move from Almond trees to Pistachio trees.
Pistachios certainly have different water requirements than other nut trees. In this Irrigation Training Series episode, Connor Cunningham will step through a scheduling strategy to help maximize yields in the field.
During this webinar you will learn:
- Common pistachio production practices
- New research on water-saving strategies
- How to use data to manage irrigation more efficiently
