Almond growers are concerned that whole-orchard recycling will deny valuable nutrients to the second-generation trees because of the high carbon-to-nitrogen ratio that could result when the previous orchard's debris is incorporated into the soil--or that the woody debris may be so large that it interferes with normal soil preparation and orchard management practices.
