Pistachio Farming Tips in India - Pista Benefits

Pistachios are nutritious snacks, rich in protein, antioxidants, and fibre. They have potential benefits for heart health, blood sugar regulation, and reducing the risk of colon cancer.
Pistachio plants like deep, well-drained clay soil with a pH of 7-8. They thrive in cold winters and hot, dry summers, with temperatures of 25-35°C.
Pistachio trees thrive in light, sandy, and well-draining soil. They don't like wet or heavy soil. The soil needs to go deep for its long taproots.
Pistachio trees are typically spaced 20x20 feet, resulting in 109 trees per acre or 272 per hectare. In small orchards, it's recommended to place 1 male tree for every 7-9 female trees.
Micro-irrigation, commonly known as low-volume irrigation, is the preferred method for pistachio cultivation. It enables precise control over the amount and timing of water applications.
Pistachio harvesting varies by type and region of the garden, starting in late summer and lasting 15-20 days. Since trees ripen at different times, it takes 2-3 weeks to complete.
