Stakeholders in the StarTree project organised a field trip to demonstration plots and experiments of grafted stone pine and pistachio as alternative nut crops in inner Spain.

The plantations, covering some 50 hectares, are demonstration plots for grafted Stone pine and pistachio, as alternative nut crops in inner Spain. The decreasing profitabilty of traditional farming and the high world market prices paid for these nuts make them an attractive opportunity for landowners.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonst ration under grant agreement No. 311919
