Pecan Orchard Installation, Hartswater

In September 2018 we installed Novaps at a Pecan Nut orchard in Hartswater. The trees are in full production and we converted surface irrigation to Novap Irrigation. A total of 8 Novaps were installed around each tree in a “compass” formation – the first four Novaps 700mm away from the trees and the remaining four 1400mm from the tree base. The trees responded extremely well. There were a few trees in this orchard that were destined to be replaced. For the first time in 5years, there are nuts on these trees!
