The Australian Nutgrower is 'the' industry journal.

The Internet also boasts more material on horticulture every day. Educational courses provide information and an opportunity to discuss your ideas. Intending commercial growers can check their plans with extension staff at Lenswood Centre and for major developments your council may need to approve 'change of land use'.

Foundations of a successful orchard - stock, layout and irrigation Careful placement of trees with relationship to each other and a recorded planting plan pay rich rewards The layout of an orchard depends on the type of tree being grown walnuts may be spaced at 7 metre intervals in the row and 9 metres between rows while raspberries are planted at half metre spacings in the row and grown on trellises 3 metres apart. But even trees of the same variety may not grow to the same order of size because of the effect of rootstocks, the 'root part of the tree' onto which the productive top part scion has been grafted.

Some rootstocks make the tree more vigorous and disease tolerant, some dwarf the tree making picking, bird protection and pruning easy but also make it more demanding of care and attention, possibly even trellising.

If you've got limited space or are aiming for a high input orchard the dwarfing rootstocks may be attractive but if you have lots of space and would like to keep inputs to a minimum a tree grown on a vigorous disease and pest tolerant stock would be best. Growers should not underestimate the damage something like Wooly Aphid can do to apples on non resistant stocks. If you've got green fingers or are too impoverished to download grafted trees you can grow the rootstocks and graft them yourself - it is very satisfying work.

Bear in mind the importance of pollination for most trees and follow the recommendations for the placement of pollenizing trees or rows of trees. Try also to get diversity into the orchard and its surrounding windbreaks Windbreaks must be part of the plan and we have standardised on non-suckering Casuarinas as wind-firm, nitrogen- fixing 'wonderbreaks'; but even they can compete with your crop trees and should be planted at least 12 metres from the orchard.

Orchards are best established on gently sloping or well-drained flat ground and tree lines should be aligned North South. Picking, machinery access, vehicle safety and erosion become challenges on steeper country. On gradients between and contour planting should be considered; anything steeper than that should really be reserved for forestry unless the intensive management of terraces is accepted into the plan.

Summers can get very hot around Adealide and a heat wave at the wrong moment can vitually ruin a crop unless supplementary water can be provided. Irrigation also enables young trees to be established easily and quickly so any new orchard should be equipped with at least some sort of watering system. The arguments rage between the 'drip' enthusiasts and the under-tree sprinkler lovers.

For those with somewhat salty water over parts per million and those with very limited flows of water, drippers offer real advantages. Most irrigation supply companies will help you design an effective system for a small orchard for free and provide all the parts as an easy-to-use kit.
