How we help you
Proper irrigation and fertigation is vital for a flourishing orchard, giving you certainty when weather patterns are unpredictable. In fruit and nut tree cultivation, double drip lines or micro sprinklers are most commonly used to ensure equal watering and nutrition on either side of each tree.

How we help you
We source high-quality soil preparation and planting equipment to create an environment for your orchard to thrive. We help with preparatory steps like soil testing, and help you get the right equipment to do the planting yourself or make the connection with a local partner for outsourcing, depending on your needs. Depending on the soil quality and plot condition, we advise on deep soil ripping, plowing, and seedbed preparation techniques and machinery for breaking up compacted soil layers and preparing to plant your orchard. Seedbed preparation techniques include leveling, soil improvement, fertilizing, and soil amendment. An automatic drill is used to dig the holes in which to plant saplings or seedlings with correct positioning and depth, to ensure proper growth and development. Grass seeding is used for improving the filtration capacity of the soil surrounding the trees, to prevent erosion, and as a permanent cover to prevent weeds.

Maintaining your orchard is investing in your future and the health, yield, and lifetime of your trees. We are able to teach you everything from effective pruning techniques to proper fertilizing and spraying for better yields, higher quality, and healthier trees.
Pruning equipment includes manual trimmers and electronic pruning shears for saplings and saw trimmers for mature trees. Different pruning methods are necessary depending on the type and age of your trees, local geography, season, and climate. With experience growing our own fruit and nut orchards and nursery, we know the ins and outs of proper pruning for healthy trees and ideal yields.
Spraying includes insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides, as well as organic alternatives, which improve your orchard by preventing unnecessary damage from pests and competition from weeds for nutrients, sunlight, and water.
While prevention is important, proper nutrition is even more so. With the proper nutrient profile your orchard will not only survive, but thrive. With a keen understanding of nutrient needs for fruit and nut cultivation as well as methods for precision delivery of fertilizer like fertigation, we are able to not only create an effective fertilizing protocol for your orchard but help you utilize your fertilizer as effectively as possible for the best result possible.
Automated or manual weed control via mechanical weeding is highly effective in protecting young trees from competition for nutrients, sunlight, and water as well as more established trees from the choking influence of excessive weeds. As one of the oldest and most well-known methods for agricultural maintenance, weeding requires care to prevent damage to trees and unnecessary soil erosion.

Besides planting and maintenance equipment for your orchard, harvest equipment is the most important investment you will make into your orchard. Your yield and product quality, as well as the lifespan and health of your trees, largely depends on using the right equipment for your context and application. At TGS we have extensive experience in fruit and nut propagation, and are ready to give your orchard the best chance at success with advice and practical support regarding choosing, maintaining, and implementing harvest equipment and machinery. Machinery we source includes tractors, carts and trolleys, harvesting nets, hydraulic tree shakers, harvesting rollers, and other equipment for ensuring optimal harvest.
When choosing the right tractor or tractors for your orchard operation, it’s important to consider the range of applications they’ll be used for and power requirements for those applications. Tractors are used constantly in agriculture for many purposes, from transport of irrigation equipment to planting and harvesting, so it’s vital that whichever you choose is high-quality, powerful enough for your needs and any modular equipment, and can tolerate any circumstantial challenges of your location and orchard or farm configuration. We help you choose the best tractor or tractors for your context, which can accommodate your workload and are versatile enough to meet the challenges of your orchard operation.
Harvesting trolleys and carts are used in a number of applications, from manual harvesting to transporting crates of harvested nuts or fruit within the orchard.
Harvesting nets are used for nut harvest as an effective and relatively inexpensive alternative to manual tree shaking and collecting or mechanical harvest methods. Harvest nets are placed around
Hydraulic tree shaking machines are attached to tractors to allow for efficient harvest of nuts, apples, pears, and other orchard fruit. The machines we source are high quality and affordable while still providing you with a high yield and making your job easier. The machines we source are able to shake between 55 and 75 trees per hour, ensuring an efficient workflow and improved harvest.
Harvesting rollers include both small-scale manual harvesting rollers for nut harvest and tractor-mounted mechanical rollers for large-scale harvesting.
In addition to harvest equipment, we provide solutions for everything that happens after. Post-harvest processing equipment is necessary for storing, sorting, washing, peeling and slicing, and packaging your product properly to ensure you are meeting quality standards and hygiene regulations before entering the market. For more on post-harvest processing, click here or fill out our contact form and we’d be happy to discuss your post-harvest needs.
