  By , about 1 million plants were in production. G’s popularity has since soared, with 5 million plants in production in , and it is the primary rootstock used in the launch of the new apple variety Cosmic Crisp. A company in Washington planted two orchards of , trees each—one with G rootstock and another with M9. proceedings In Press, Acta Hort (US standard units).

Semi-dwarf orchards today have densities of trees per acre at spacings of 16' x 22' to 10' x 14'. Dwarf orchards are planted with spacings as tight as 2' x 10', but more commonly 4' x 14' and up to 7' x 16' for densities of trees per acre. Standard orchards are no longer planted because they take too long to produce. M is the global standard for rootstock and is the most widely planted cultivar in Washington. M shows tremendous compatibility with most scions, but its susceptibility to fire blight makes it a rootstock to avoid in areas where fire blight is a concern, Auvil said.

A particular variety can be grafted to a dwarf, semi-dwarf or standard rootstock, giving the grower a choice in tree size for most varieties. the high cost of labor must be considered when.   There is likely not a “best” apple rootstock, though the replant-tolerant Geneva rootstocks (G, G, G, G, G, G) are much better than the available standards of Budagovksy 9, Mark, Malling 9 clones, M and the semidwarf rootstocks.

By Samuel M. Doran and Raymond E. Hunter. Topics: Publisher: Pullman, Washington: Washington State University. Extension. Year: Author: Samuel M. Doran and Raymond E. Hunter. For a fully established cider apple orchard, a producer would expect about $2, per acre of net returns based on a yield of 46 bins/acre at $/bin, and the break-even return was estimated at.

The orchard is located in the apple growing region of central Washington. Because Fuji requires a relatively long growing season, not all orchard sites within the apple growing regions of Washington will be ideal for producing Fuji.

Nevertheless, costs to establish a. APPLE ORCHARD IN NORTHWEST WASHINGTON Richard W. Carkner, Dyvon M. Havens and Craig MacConnell1 This study presents estimated costs of establishing a acre Jonagold apple orchard in northwest Washington.

Growers, prospective growers, agricultural lenders, and others concerned with the Washington apple industry can use the information to.

Impacts. Short-Term: This project provides Washington growers with new information and results regarding the costs for establishing and producing a cider apple orchard in western ation regarding break even prices and profitability will assist growers in determining which options to select for orchard planting systems and what prices to set for fruit.

Sample costs to establish an apple orchard and produce apples in the Intermountain Region – El Dorado County are presented in this study. The study is intended as a guide only, and can be used to make Fuji apple on M rootstock with an October harvest is the variety chosen for this study. Note: for a standard-size tree (a tree grown to its full potential), one can graft onto almost any rootstock and plant the tree with the graft about two inches beneath the soil.

The tree will exceed the dwarfing capacity of the rootstock. ROOTSTOCK PRICES: All rootstocks will be 1/4” in diameter. Semi-dwarfing rootstock resulting from a cross between M and M.9 made at the East Malling Research Station, Maidstone, Kent, England. M is traditionally considered a dwarf rootstock, but is one of the more vigorous dwarfing rootstocks.

M is grown widely throughout the world and is included as a “standard” in many rootstock trials. The assumptions refer to Tables 1 to 8 and pertain to sample costs to establish a cherry orchard and produce cherries in the northern San Joaquin Valley. The cultural practices shown represent production operations and materials considered typical of a well-managed orchard in the region.

Study Objectives The study objectives include estimating 1) the costs of the equipment, materials, supplies, and labor required to establish and maintain a modern Gala apple orchard; and 2) what prices and yields must be obtained to make.

Total cost of establishing the orchard, minus reve­ nues from sale of partial crops in years 4 and 5, is approximately $12, per acre. normal/standard rootstocks. Rootstocks are important part of the orchard establishment, (Different rootstocks, standard vs dwarf can affect the size and growth of the tree throughout the life of the tree).

In the second year 5% or 14 trees per acre are replanted for those lost in the first year. In the following years trees are replanted.

The primary disadvantage is the high cost of orchard establishment. As a rule, a high density orchard will require approximately $10, per acre for orchard establishment through the second year.

THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING AN APPLE ORCHARD IN THE KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI REGION 10 Purpose of the Study The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of establishing an apple orchard in the Kansas City, Missouri, region.

The 5th year, on average, is when apple trees begin baring fruit for sale. STANDARD: 25 foot spacing. Domestic apple seedling - Most popular rootstock for full-size, long-lived trees. SEMI-DWARF: 16 foot spacing.

MM - This has proven itself the most widely adapted and reliable clonal apple rootstock. Too vigorous for some situations, it approaches the standard seedling types for health, longevity, and overall.

M Rootstock (Semi-Standard) produces a tree that is 18 to 25 feet tall (% of Standard), grows in most any soil type and does well in clay. Recommended spacing between trees is 20 feet. Trees are well anchored and the rootstock is disease resistant.
