On June 28th and 29th, the first edition of DemoAlmendro was held at La Copa estate in Logrosán, Cáceres, a reference point for almond tree innovation.
The so-called hedgerow almond tree is characterized by a reduced planting frame, late flowering varieties and rootstocks that reduce the vigor of the plants. The total mechanization of this crop alternative is facilitating its quick expansion in large areas of rainfed and irrigated land in our country.
The weeding and tillage demonstration was carried out with the front chassis with in-row weeders and with the double rear chassis with ID-STAR discs for ridge maintenance.
In pruning, the V1, a disc pruner ideal for side and crown pruning, was on display, as well as the PV-SETO blade pruner.
Also on display in the exhibition area was the new model for olive trees skirt pruning, a high-performance automatic absorption pruner for pruning the skirts of super-intensive olive groves to avoid olive loss during harvesting and to promote aeration.
