Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a pretty book with lots of nice photos then this book is not for you! Although this book claims to be for the "layman", it is still stuffed full of mathematical equations & other complex graphs, detailing how the trees grow & why. Some of the illustrations and black & white photos are actually difficult to follow or understand. The writing is certainly very informative, but it proved to me - a real layman I hasten to add! - rather inconclusive at times. I was looking for guidance on what to do with my olive trees, and I am now left somewhat startled & still a little confused after reading it.

However it has given me a lot of background on the nature of olive trees, and rather than simply recommending one style of pruning/training, it discusses them all, for the reader to choose the one that fits best depending on the very specific orchard conditions.

If you have a little knowledge of the habit of olives already, or perhaps you are working alonside an experienced olive horticulturist, then I am sure it will be your indispensible guide for looking after your grove.

Heavy reading, but all you will need to know. Very specific, but exhaustive in its information. I was new to the olive producing business but now my friends see me as an expert thanks to what I have learnt.

Helpful and filled with knowledge and insight 26 Dec. 2012
By W.R.E. Duminy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A most helpful and enlightening book. The technical and complex subject is made accessible and logical. It is erudite without being pretentious, and instructive without being dogmatic. A most useful work for the average olive farmer to have at his hand.

It will make more sense if the author provided weather zones. For example, it would have been helpful if a table was included that shows: 4 or 5 different regions, elevation, temperature during cultivation, etc. if I am from a different part of the world I can compare my data to a certain region in Italy.

Pruning and Training Systems for Modern Olive Growing 7 Dec. 2009
By Gwendolyn N - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book primarily for the few pages on pruning to renew an old orchard. What I saw was pretty radical, but it might be just what I need for my orchard of 100 year old olive trees. Time will tell. I'll get back to you then.
