BOOSTING pistachio crops by 19%
How Edete's Precision Pollination Services increased
pistachio yields during California's record year
ith proven effectiveness in increasing
the yield of almond and pistachio orchards,
Edete's Precision Pollination solution addresses
critical challenges in agriculture, including lack of chill hours,
flower desynchronization and the scarcity of natural
pollinators. Edete's Precision Pollination as a Service (PPaS)
caters to both young and mature pistachio orchards, offering
a comprehensive solution that boosts productivity.
Edete conducted precision pollination on 500 acres of
pistachios in Bakersfield, California, for one of the largest
growers in the United States. Pollination occurred during the
flowering seasons of April 2022 and April 2023, encompassing
three young plots of the Golden Hills variety, planted in 2016
and 2017.
Edete also implemented 2Be
® mechanical pollinator,
designed to disperse pure pollen with precision in controlled
and accurate quantities on trees. With a daily capacity of 150
acres, 2Be
® played a pivotal role in augmenting natural
pistachio pollination.
According to Edete, the Israeli agri-tech startup has seen a
19% average increase in pistachio crop production in
California in 2023. PPaS combats agricultural risks, enhancing
overall crop resilience. 2023 was a record-breaking year for
U.S. crop production, estimated at 1.5 billion pounds. This
success marks the second consecutive year of yield growth in
the same plots.
As a result of crop production increase, pistachio growers
increased financial impact. With an average 19% increase in
crop production, growers can get an additional $1,000 to
$1,300 per acre with the predicted average crop of 3,000 to
3,800 pound-per-acre based on an average price of $1.80 per
pound in 2023.
" The increase in yield in 2023 underscores the effectiveness
of precision pollination in overcoming natural pollination
deficiencies, " said Eylam Ran, CEO of Edete. " This not only
ensures optimal yields, even in record crop years but also
contributes to agricultural resilience and food security for
consumers. I am delighted to see early adopters of Edete's
PPaS continuing to engage with our services in 2024,
emphasizing the lasting impact on profitability for farmers. "
