Production Per HA, Dan Leonardo, 11. Mar 2013 12:25

I was hoping for some insight from this forum:
The average production per HA in Peru is 12-14 tons per HA. The
project I'm working on uses high density (833 plants per HA) and
assumes a "conservative" production output after 4 years of 22.5 tons
per HA. Is this realistic? The agricultural engineers I'm working with in Chincha are confident that we will hit and surpass these numbers. Can the use of high density double the average production per HA? THere are other farms in Chincha that are
using high density but none of them have reached 4, 5 or 6 years to
verify production numbers. I've read and heard that in Ica, Peru
certain farms have reached 35-40 tons per HA using high density, but
these numbers are the exception and I'm not sure that the weather and
soil in Ica and Chincha are identical to rely on those numbers. Kindly provide any information you might have regarding high density production generally per HA (and in Peru if possible). I would greatly appreciate any comments. Best regards, Dan

You can start by reading the following report from Chile:

The avocado industry in Chile and its evolution
Francisco Gardiazabal and Francisco Mena

There are many factors which you have to take into account: weather, water quality, soil, rootstock and cultural care.
I believe that in Peru you need to spray so the trees in the row could not be at the same distance as between rows. If under your condition you can maintain a level of production without alternate bearing this production level must be maintained, you go much more and something will have to give. You need to produce moderately yet consistently. You can't afford under high density to have some trees with fruit and others will not; you will be driven into attending to individual trees. Given the rapid growth of trees in Peru you should use PGR like Sunny or Cultar especially post pruning. clonal rootstocks can help

Thanks Reuben!

Is anybody in this forum involved with avocado groves in Peru? I am interested in the production capabilities of ICA and Chincha?

Many thanks,

Dan
