Wenke met plant van Pekan bome

'n Paar wenke wanneer jy bome plant:

  • Toets die watergehalte as jy uit 'n boorgat pomp.
  • Toets en doen ontleding van die grond, want dit is geleentheid om voedingsregstellings te maak.
  • Grondvoorbereiding: dit is belangrik om diep los te maak.
  • Vermeng bemesting goed om brandskade te voorkom
  • Gooi ook 400 g Zinksulfaat per boom om Zink status in grond aan te vul
  • Sorg dat grondvog voldoende is en moet glad nie in droe grond plant nie
  • Gee water om die grond weer met suurstof te verreik nadat die boom geplant en goed vasgetrap is. Soos wat die water intrek, beweeg suurstof saam met water in die grond in.
  • Hou bome nat op veldwater kapasiteit vir eerste 8 weke na plant totdat die wortels hul geanker het en die vermoë het om water te kan gaan soek.
  • Gee eerste jaar eerder meer water as te min water.

Lekker boom plant!

We are developing a pecan tree which we generate in the lab through tissue culture development. The benefit of this tree is that all the trees will have the same DNA structure. 


This will give a uniform orchard with high potential.

We manage solar penetration into the tree. There are many different  styles to hedge but we must try to get the tree in balance between vegetative development  and root development.  The thicker your shoots are the more new shoots will develop and the less sun will go into the canopy of the tree and less nuts will be produced.
