Do you apply nutrition after harvest?
You May Be Missing Out!
Most orchard managers stop foliar applications after harvest. However, this is the critical point where trees start to build the buds for the following year's crop. Growers who apply foliar nutrition between harvest and leaf drop profit with more robust buds, larger sized fruit, and more fruit per tree the following year. Growers have also noted increased disease resistance in the spring when trees are fully loaded with nutrition in the fall.
Use plant sap analysis to pinpoint the nutrients your trees are deficient in...
By monitoring tree nutrition through sap analysis, you can ensure that the tree has optimum nutrients to grow large energy filled buds for next year's crop.

“Starting at the end of harvest in 2015, I said to myself, I'm seeing some real benefits from this post-harvest program; a real return on my investment, and I should be doing it more intensively so we can see a further return on our investment. So we began doing multiple foliar applications starting at the end of harvest last year and my plan is to continue that this year.”
