Soil Preparation



Soil Preparation

In this video we discuss the correct ways in which to prepare a piece of ground that will be used to create an orchard.

We look at soil insects and diseases that could affect the new orchard, such as specific replant disease.

Specific Re-plant Disease will result in the new orchard performing poorly and must be avoided.

Soil preparation is one of the vital aspects of fruit farming which will have a huge effect on the farm’s production in later years. It’s best not to skimp on soil preparation or take any short cuts.

This video shows the machines and the techniques that are employed on a modern deciduous fruit farm to prepare the soil in the best possible way to give the farmer every chance of success when planting a new orchard.
