Reports to Orchard Manager

Thinning is where excess fruit is removed from the tree to reward the grower with a more robust tree and better fruits, for that year and into the future. Thinning is about removing extras to improve the remainder, but best of all it keeps your tree’s equilibrium steady by ensuring there are enough nutrients for this year’s fruit as well as for spur development.
