Saving Water on Pistachio Trees

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

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

A simple addition to your irrigation water in your conventional operation will give you a tremendous advantage in efficient water use in the soil and the plant. Much of this process takes place in the root zone, or rhizosphere. This is the most biologically active area of your soil, and that is the main zone for water uptake by the plant.

Sonny (see video) as an avid researcher on the internet, found some unique information about a product formulation known as MultiFIX™. He applied MultiFIX™ through his irrigation system and observed the rapid growth of his young trees. He later learned from neighboring commercial growers that his new trees were growing faster than their trees of the same age.

MultiFIX™ is known to enhance 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, with the possibility of a profitable harvest one year sooner than non-treated trees.

Sonny first planted his pistachio trees in 2019 in the Mojave Desert area of California USA where temperatures are commonly 115°F in the summers and saving water is essential.

Sonny learned from the neighboring growers they were applying between 50-100 gallons of water per tree per week. After applying MultiFIX™, Sonny only applied 12 gallons per tree per week, partially due to irrigation system and clogging from calcium in the water.

Even after consulting with the nursery, the fertilizer supplier and UC Davis advisors, the harsh desert conditions resulted in several trees failing to survive due to issues with the irrigation emitters on several trees.
