    in seed orchards is grafting. Grafting is a time-honored, very suc-cessful process of vegetative propagation used broadly in fruit and nut orchards and in forest tree seed orchards. It works well, is relatively simple, and very quickly can produce multiple copies of elite selections. That is of course, in almost all tree species except by: 3.   Reduced irrigation is most easily and accurately applied with pressurized irrigation systems – solid set, drip, or micro-sprinkler irrigation. The pressure bomb is the key tool to managing almond orchards under reduced water availability. This device measures plant water status as Stem Water Potential (SWP).

A drip irrigation system is easy to Drip irrigation is the slow and precise delivery of water to chosen plantings. It uses flexible polyethylene tubing with devices for dripping water (emitters) and low-volume sprays. The systems are easy to install, require no trenching, and the only tools needed are pruning shears and a punch.

sprinkler irrigation to drip and micro irrigation in order to more efficiently use irrigation water. Although flood irrigating mature apple orchards is more common, a study done by Cetin et al. () on 47 sample apple farms found that through the switch of flood to drip irrigation there would be large yield increases and water savings.

Most studies and reviews I have read on conversion of traditional irrigation practices (impact, overhead, flood) to micro irrigation call out "micro sprayers" as clearly superior to drip for yield, fruit sizing, tree vigor, function, etc.

Again, your soil type is going to be an important factor in this selection. ADVERTISEMENTS: Importance of Proper Water Management in Orchards. Availability of water for irrigation purposes is limited but demand is increasing day by day.

Weed management is one of the most important areas of orchard floor management, as weeds compete with the trees for water and nutrients, inhibit adequate irrigation, and provide habitat for vertebrate pests. Weed species in orchards include annual and perennial .cultivation of field crops.
