Sites with a favorable aspect and appropriate soils must be selected, avoiding the situations in which a continuous supply of inputs will be necessary. For instance, frost pockets, (areas with high risk for frost), poor drainage and shallow non-moisture retentive soils, must be avoided.

Soil must be sampled and chemically analyzed prior to planting. For new orchards, the pH should be corrected before planting.
