Peaches and Nectarines

  1. Apply N to peaches and nectarines at the rate of one-tenth (0.1) pound of actual N per year of tree Adjust the rate according to growth the previous year. Non-bearing trees should make at least 18 inches of terminal growth and have good leaf color. Bearing trees should make 10 to 15 inches of terminal growth annually. Do not increase N rates for trees 10 years or older.
