Starting to Pollinate Pistachios in California!

Apr 13, 2021 | Pistachios, Pollination

Pistachios are wind-pollinated, pollen from male trees is transferred by wind to female trees that bear the yield. Yet, in some orchards male trees will blossom ahead of female trees, resulting in lower yields or no yield at all. We’ve been asked by Californian growers to test if artificial pollination can secure the yield. Our 2Be™ mechanical pollinators are ready and set in California. We’re very excited to start pollination not only almonds but pistachios as well.
