This new edition of Save and Grow comes following the Rio+20 Conference in June 2012 and the launch of the Zero Hunger Challenge by the United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. The challenge has five elements: guarantee year-round access to adequate food, end stunting in children, double small farmer productivity, foster sustainable food production systems, and reduce food waste and loss to zero. In assisting countries to adopt Save and Grow policies and approaches, FAO is responding to that challenge and helping to build the hunger-free world we all want.
Choose a location with well-drained, fertile soil that receives at least six hours of full sun per day. Semi-dwarf peach trees need full sun to grow well. Dig a hole deep enough so that the top 2 to 3 inches of the rootstock, the bottom part of the graft, will be above the ground. If the entire rootstock is underground, the tree will not have the limited height of a semi-dwarf peach tree and will grow into a full-size tree with the characteristics of the scion. The width of the hole should be at least a foot wider than the rootstock. Add organic material like compost or manure to clay-like or sandy soil to help loosen it up and to help with drainage.
