Pistachios grow everywhere; But what is important is choosing an area where pistachio planting has an economic burden. The first step for building pistachio gardens is to know the climatic conditions of the region. In agriculture, it is important to know the climatic characteristics of each region in order to be compatible with the cultivation of each plant and increase production. And doing any activity should be with the knowledge of the climatic condition of the region. Continue with us to discuss the suitable climatic conditions for pistachio tree planting.
What are the features of suitable pistachio planting areas?
•The soil should not be salty and the result should be good.
•Relative humidity should be about 40%. (In humid weather, the pistachio tree will not produce, but it will grow.)
•Hot and dry weather in summer (not too hot) and cold and moderate winter
•Water should not be too salty (EC below 10000)
•The suitable height for pistachio planting is 900 to 2000.
What areas are suitable for planting pistachios?
In short, pistachio trees are usually located at an altitude of 900 to 2000 meters above sea level. For some species, the suitable altitude is 700 to 3000 meters. Although the suitable height for pistachio planting is mentioned as 900 to 2000. According to the observations made, even in some areas at an altitude of 40 meters, pistachio has produced an economic product.
The soil is suitable for pistachio tree growth
The proper pH of pistachio tree soil should be neutral. Also, the soil should have good permeability so that the pistachio tree can take root in it. The best soil for planting pistachios is a mixture of sand and clay. so that the root can move easily in the soil.
The pistachio tree can produce in bad conditions, but other trees dry up completely with a slight salinity of water or water stress. The tolerance of pistachio in the conditions of relative salinity of water is not the reason for its planting in salty soils, so that with the increase of salinity, gardens gradually become uneconomic; Therefore, in order to plant pistachio trees in mountainous areas and harvest economic crops, the best climatic conditions should be provided for it.
