Traditional orchards (from 100 to 300 trees/ha) still represents the vast majority of Italian olive orchards. They present problems because often their yields are low and production costs are high. This situation pushes to a renovation of the sector through the establishment of new olive orchards which allow high yields and mechanization of cultural practices, particularly harvesting. This can be done using two main orchard designs, the intensive and superintensive ones, with the former that is well known and experienced and the latter that has been recently introduced. Intensive olive orchards consist of 200 to 400 trees/ha and are designed to be harvested with trunk shakers. Superintensive olive orchards range 1000-2500 trees/ha and are designed to be harvested with continuous straddle machines. Moreover, high density olive orchards, with tree densities comprised between those of intensive and superintensive orchards, have been proposed and are under evaluation. In the present work we report detailed information on requirements and technical aspects related to the establishment and management of intensive and superintensive olive orchards, along with the description of their main advantages and disadvantages, to allow growers to choose their best option based on farm size, available capitals and labour, and commercial targets.
