Who: Nut Growers and Grower Advisors

What: Early Season Analysis for Nitrogen Management

Let Fruit Growers Laboratory aid you in efficient and profitable nitrogen (N) application by conducting early season tissue analysis for nut crops. Our tissue analysis reports will show current nitrogen levelsĀ and provide predicted July N values following the UC-Early Season Protocol. This can assist you in determining the right rate of N application for the current season, thus maximizing productivity and minimizing the potential for N loss.

Note: FGL is able to report using this protocol for Almonds and Pistachios, and new this year; Walnuts.
