First, implement an orchard’s map on the land by squaring up and pegging up. Then, locate and mark the precise planting location of saplings. The best way of planting pomegranate is in rectangle shape at a distance of 4*2 m, and as required in lands which have high surface water level implement rectangle way by lister planting system.
Before planting saplings, eliminate broken, wounded, and damaged roots by appropriate pruning.
And for preventing root contamination to diseases, sapling roots should be immersed in disinfection solution according to the following instruction, and then be planted.
Benomyl pesticides or similar fungicides poisons 300g+ clay 10 Kg+ manure 10 Kg+ water 100 l for each sapling pot. Then, untie tangled roots by hands.
The pit should be 2 to 3 times wider than the ball root.
And planting depth should be in a way that the grafting zone locates at least a few cm over the soil surface. During excavation dump upper soil at the depth of one shovel on one side and lower soil at the other side of the pit, and mix the separated upper soil of the pit with the same volume of compost and dump it in the bottom of the pit.
Dump some mixed land’s surface soil with manure compost into the pit, then plant saplings directly into the pit that grafting zone or cutting tip should be placed a knuckle upper than the soil surface. Fill the pit with soil and remove the air and spaces around roots by stepping. Irrigate saplings immediately and fasten them to a guard.
Trees should be planted in rows so that orchard’s growing and harvesting operation in the future could be implemented easily and the utilization feasibility of different types of machinery in poison spraying and eliminating weeds could be possible.
