Super high density almond crops
The success of Agromillora’s super high density approach in olive groves encouraged us to apply this system to other species. As a result of this approach, and taking advantage of recently-developed genetic improvement programme by our R&D department on new rootstocks, the Rootpac®20 dwarfing rootstock was obtained, designed for adapting several species to the high-density system.
Thus, since 2010 we started developing high-density almond tree plantations to address the problems of traditional systems. Currently there are more than 2,500 ha of super high density almond trees scattered around the world: Spain, Portugal, Italy, USA, Morocco, Tunisia, Chile and Turkey among others.

Some adapted varieties
The Smarttree® plant format is specifically designed for the super high density system. Smarttree® plants are the perfect solution for the new high-density almond plantations. They involve a substantial reduction in plantation, crop handling and harvesting costs.
The combination comprising the Rootpac®20 dwarfing rootstock and the wide range of grafting varieties that we make available to customers are the best resource to successfully tackle super high density almond tree plantation projects.
