Response of pistachio to low soil moisture conditions

Response of pistachio to low soil moisture conditions

Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science 102(4): 470-473

The staminate clone Israel 502 (a Pistacia vera hybrid) and pistillate trees of Kerman and Lassen pistachio (P. vera) on 2 seedling rootstocks showed remarkable drought resistance under runoff farming in the Negev desert highlands. During favourable seasons, root distribution was fairly uniform down to 240 cm. Moisture depletion fluctuated between 58 and 477 mm during 1971-1974 because of great differences in flood water availability and low annual rainfall (54-163 mm).
