Saving Water on Pistachio Trees

What if you could be saving water and have rapidly-growing pistachio trees?

If you’re a conventional pistachio grower, and you want to be saving water on your pistachio trees, try this simple addition to your irrigation water…the clear blue liquid known as MultiFIX. You’ll get a tremendous advantage in efficient water use in both the soil and the plant.

Within minutes of application, MultiFIX goes to work in your trees’ root zone, or rhizosphere. This narrow region surrounding the roots is the most biologically active part of your soil and is also the main water uptake zone for  the plant. Once MultiFIX begins feeding the rhizosphere’s native microbes, they become healthier and more efficient, which then makes water and nutrient uptake more efficient. And that means your trees will not only use less water, they’ll begin producing more as well.

Case in point, our client Sonny [see video below], a new grower but an avid researcher, learned about MultiFIX early on. He applied MultiFIX through his irrigation system and observed the rapid growth of his young trees. He later learned that his trees were growing faster than his neighbors equivalent new trees.

But that wasn’t what shocked him. It was the water that shocked him. Sonny first planted his pistachio trees in 2019 in the Mojave Desert area of California. Temperatures here commonly reach 115°F in the summers, and saving water is essential.

So when Sonny also learned that his neighbors were applying 50 to 100 gallons of water every week to each of their new trees, his jaw dropped. Sonny’s trees were only getting 12 gallons. [This was partially due to his irrigation system and from calcium clogging his water. But MultiFIX had made his trees so much more efficient that he didn’t notice until later.]

"From a calculation perspective, I’m only putting about 12 gallons per tree per week."

MultiFIX enhances the efficiency of the chemical, physical and biological processes, which can result in substantial water savings. MultiFIX also has the added benefit of increasing the uptake of nutrients and minerals through the roots and/or foliage. The end result is faster growth due to the water savings and eventually, higher income. There’s even the possibility of a profitable harvest one year sooner with MultiFIX.

Sonny continues to consult with nursery staff, his fertilizer supplier, UC Davis advisers, and Advanced BioTech. We all assist in his effort to grow a profitable pistachio crop in harsh desert conditions. It’s apparent that MultiFIX played a big role in his plant’s health and overall water savings.
