Stick-tight Almonds

I have leased seven acres of bearing almond trees which have the

appearance of being reasonably well cared for. I notice a few trees that

still have almonds on ("stick-tights"). What is the cause and remedy?

The occurrence of stick-tights is generally due to lack of moisture and

thrifty growth, although some trees may be weak from some other cause

and therefore deficient in sap-flow, which manifests itself in that way.

Single nuts may also fall into that condition of malnutrition. We know

no remedy except to keep the trees in good thrift by cultivation or by

the use of irrigation if necessary.
