Pistachio cultivation with UCB1
The UCB1 rootstock is an excellent option for growing pistachio due to its resistance to cold, salinity and diseases, which translates into greater profitability and immediate availability. Below, we detail the different aspects to take into account when growing pistachio with UCB1.
Planting method from grafted plants
To plant pistachios with UCB1 it is recommended to use grafted plants. The technique consists of grafting the bud of a branch of the pistachio tree that you want to grow onto a UCB1 rootstock, getting it to adhere and allowing the bud to grow. This method ensures effective rooting and good adaptability of the plant to the terrain.
Selection of the best seeds and rootstocks
It is essential to select the best seeds and rootstocks to ensure the strength of the tree and maximize the investment.

Why should you buy UCB1 instead of other pistachio rootstocks?
