Planting Systems

Planting Systems

Planting systems are chosen based on the orchard’s location, climate and topography, plant species to be planted, and orchard management procedures. Growing systems are also known as layout systems, because no one strategy is appropriate for planting fruit plants in all situations.



  • Planning the Orchard: Make a plan that will allow the producer to give the most cost-effective orchard management, as well as a cost-effective layout and placement of roads, drains, irrigation channels, hedges, and windbreaks, among other things.
  • Prepare Layout Systems: Layout refers to determining the location of trees, roads, and structures in the orchard that is being constructed. The systematic planting of trees is referred to as a layout system.
