Super-intensive almond plantations
Farmers are increasingly opting for intensive and super-intensive cropping systems due to their increased profitability and production capacity. Among these systems, hedge is becoming increasingly popular due to its high mechanization and optimistic growth projections for the crop in the coming years. The choice of cultivation model will depend on several factors, such as the characteristics of the terrain, climatic conditions and market needs, among others.

Cost of implementing a new almond plantation
The cost of an almond plantation with a super intensive planting framework can vary depending on various factors, such as geographical location, climate, soil characteristics, planting framework, variety, rootstocks, royalty, among others.
Framework for almond plantations in hedge
In our hedge cropping system, we have significantly reduced the size of planting frames. Currently, we work with frames between 3.2 and 3.5 meters of distance between lines and 1 to 1.5 meters of separation between floors. This translates into a high planting density, which will normally exceed 2,200 plants/ha.
Super-intensive almond production
The increase in the intensification of planting frames results in an increased number of hedge-shaped plants, which allows complete mechanization of the crop. This is beneficial in situations of labor shortage, since harvesting and other work can be carried out in a fully mechanized manner.
In general, a maximum production of around 2,000 kg of pip per hectare can be obtained from the fourth year after planting. In addition, it is important to note that this cultivation system, by allowing mechanization, reduces the amount of manual labor needed and therefore, can decrease labor costs. Our team of agricultural experts is at your disposal to advise you on the choice of the most suitable planting system for your farm, considering the particularities of your terrain, climate and other relevant factors. We strive to offer efficient and customized solutions for our customers to achieve the best results in their almond production.
