Water Savings of 52% on Orchard Trees
Only 12 Gallons per Week
Trees Thrive – Even in Drought
Save Water on Orchard Trees!
Mojave Desert pistachios are healthy and thriving with limited water thanks to MultiFIX®
Sonny began growing pistachio trees on five acres in California’s Mojave Desert, where summer temperatures regularly reach 115°-120°F. Pistachios, being native to the arid climate of Central Asia, are tough and hardy trees, but they still need water. Plant scientists at the University of California at Davis say young trees the size of Sonny’s need 60 to 70 gallons of water each week during the hottest summer months in order to thrive.
Sonny’s irrigation system was not up to the task. It could deliver his pistachios only 12 gallons of water per tree per week. But Sonny contacted us at Advanced BioTech, gave his trees MultiFIX®, and his orchard thrived. His neighbors were impressed with the very noticeable dark-green leaves and rapidly growing trees, and they didn’t know about Sonny’s irrigation issues.
“I saw a neighbor at the gas station,” Sonny told us. The neighbor said, “I know you. You’re the guy that’s making his trees grow really fast!”
“Are you putting a lot of water on them?”
“Not really,” answered Sonny. “I’m actually underwatering them. I’m only putting about 12 gallons a week on each tree…compared to some people who are running about 25. Same aged tree.”
Another neighbor and friend who helps Sonny is a lifelong farmer that owns 8,000 acres of alfalfa, pistachios and other crops. He is so impressed with Sonny’s orchard that he’s interested in also becoming a MultiFIX® client.
“We got really good foliage last year, super bright green,” Sonny told us, “which is consistent with some of the [MultiFIX®] videos that I’ve seen.”
Sonny’s impressive experience with MultiFIX® is more proof that trees can grow rapidly and be healthy, even with limited available water.
Watch the one-minute video of Sonny describing in his own words about growing his pistachios with MultiFIX®. Then be sure to contact us to learn what MultiFIX® can do for your operation to build soil health and increase your farm income. The water savings alone can be more than the input cost of MultiFIX®.

Third Leaf Update
Sonny’s neighbor & long-time farmer converted decades of alfalfa crops to these nice Pistachio trees. The 12-year-old trees now use 480 gallons of water per tree per week. MultiFIX® is in his plans for lowering NPK and water costs.
Sonny’s trees are thriving even with irrigation pump and flow issues choking back the amount of water applied. MultiFIX® is the only variable that would create conditions for these trees to rapidly grow with only 12 gallons of water.
Fourth Leaf Update
As the trees continue to grow, the amount of water has been increased from 12 to 54 gallons per week. There are changes in soils and plants that cause more efficient use of water where MultiFIX is applied.
While all the mechanisms are still being studied, the actual amount of water is significantly less.
