Walnut Blogletter 18 – May 2014

2022-11-21T14:21:27+13:00

← Return to All Walnut Blogletters Not having put out a blogletter 18 for a while has been eating at my conscience, so with another season underway, I thought I would try and get the conversations going again. This will be a short letter, with the aim of eliciting your comments and stories, which is what most participants value. I find every season is a one-off, and leaves you quite unprepared for the next one. Early spring for us was beautifully dry and that showed in very low incidence of brown apical necrosis (BAN) and bacterial blight in spite of not [...]

Walnut Blogletter 17 – August 2013

2022-11-21T14:20:32+13:00

Hi, Nick ,Pauline, many thanks for sending this on, really enjoyed reading it . Ray, Elaine Brown Jeremy Bicknell also picked up on the Spanish paper on growing walnuts for timber, which developed into a discussion on this topic.  That will be good to reproduce in a later blogletter.  Hi Nick, Many thanks for latest blogletter.  So interesting to hear about walnut growing in China and Jeffrey’s account of his visit there. Let’s hope that some of the disease problems that they face don’t find their way here too quickly! On a personal note, we have about a dozen trees (mostly grafted [...]

Walnut Blogletter 15 – July 2013

2013-07-05T03:20:48+12:00

← Return to All Walnut Blogletters This blogletter 15 is so overdue that you probably had thought you had heard the last of me. My only consolation has been that you may have been just as busy with your bumper harvest and probably have not had time to read a blogletter anyway. To break the log-jam, I am passing on this information compiled by David Whyte on Boron (link below). Yes, we are back on the subject of Boron deficiency, but I think you will agree when you read it that here is information that you need to know. I have [...]

Walnut Blogletter 14 – January 2013

2013-01-31T02:19:02+13:00

← Return to All Walnut Blogletters Before we get on to the main subject of this blogletter, prompted by the news reports of roundup resistant weeds, we need to air responses to the last blogletter. You may recall, that the subject was fertilizer application, quickly followed by this. A cautionary note about over fertilizing. The benefit of this blogletter has been to see how differently people approach their walnut growing. I have been thinking about the possible responses to the fertilizer section of the last blogetter and have decided that a note of caution is in order before you start throwing [...]

A cautionary note about over fertilizing. The benefit of this blogletter has been to see how differently people approach their walnut growing. I have been thinking about the possible responses to the fertilizer section of the last blogetter and have decided that a note of caution is in order before you start throwing around large amounts of fertilizer.

Competition

2012-12-29T01:10:32+13:00

We need to keep an eye on the competition. Anna Brenmuhl sends us interesting walnut articles. I have picked out some comments; US (CA): Good demand for walnuts continues “Lots of market research shows that the health benefits of walnuts are important factors when it comes to choosing them,” said CEO of the California Walnut Commission, Dennis Balint.
