Almond Plant Nutrition E-Learning
Virtual Almond Nutrition Training has been created for people to become fully acquainted with almond nutrition. Almond is a tree of the Rosaceae family and belongs to the genus Prunus and the species Amygdalus.
Almond is one of the deciduous perennial woody plants that is often seen as a tree and in wild species as a shrub. The tree grows well in Mediterranean climates and in areas with hot, dry summers and mild winters.
Almonds high consumption nutrients:
- Nitrogen consumption in almond tree:
Nitrogen is one of the most consumed nutrients needed for almond tree growth, the deficiency of which appears in the form of pale, small leaves, low strength, dryness of small branches, reducing the number of fruits in the tree and reducing the yield. The supply of nitrogen in the form of oh increases the efficiency of pollination and fruit set, and as a result, the yield increases. Nitrogen consumption is divided into three parts and is given to the plant in three stages of February, March and late April.
- Trace elements needed for almond tree:
Among the trace elements, zinc, copper and boron deficiency have been reported more. Zinc deficiency causes the production of small leaves in almonds and yellowing between the leaf veins in the leaves. Spraying zinc sulfate at a rate of 6.8 to 11.3 kg in 378 liters of water during the plant rest season has a positive result.
- Symptoms of copper deficiency in almonds:
In the case of copper deficiency, the symptoms appear as low growth, dry skin, and wrinkles of the almond kernel. Spraying EDTA copper on the foliage has been effective in eliminating the deficiency.
Symptoms of boron deficiency in almonds:
Burns on the tips of the leaves are usually due to a lack of boron. The application of Brax in the soil at a rate of 66 to 112 kg/ha eliminates the symptoms of deficiency. This amount of boron is enough for four years.
- Almond leaf sampling time for element deficiency:
One way to diagnose almond deficiency is leaf decomposition. Although the amount of elements in the leaves may vary in different months and under different conditions, the best time to harvest a leaf sample is in June and July.
