There is no mystery to cultivating olives.  It's about staying involved, on-going education, good management practices and standards and A LOT of hard work.  I've said it before and I'll say it again right here for all to see, if you must be in 100% control, farming is likely not for you.  Even when we do everything right, Mother Nature rules.  My words of advice, for what they are worth: Be involved, get involved, stay involved.  Absorb, absorb, absorb and then make it happen in your field.  Inevitably you will have to tweak what you learned because this is farming.  We all have different soil, weather patterns, disease or pest pressures and challenges. 

That said, we've put together some resources for you and we hope you find them to be beneficial.  Best to all!
