Tal-Ya Trays reducing irrigation needs in California lemon orchard

A California lemon orchard is putting Tal-Ya Trays (weed mats) to the test in the face of extreme drought conditions and severely reduced irrigation allocations.

The results to date?  Excellent.  The field foreman has seen a significant reduction in irrigation requirements, and is very pleased with the growth and health of the trees.

The grower is also using Tal-Ya Trays on replant trees within existing orchards, to simplify weed control, conserve water and accelerate growth so replacement trees quickly catch up and get into production.
