flcitrus.JPG (17720 bytes) Citrus Growing in Florida, Fourth Edition

by Larry K. Jackson and Frederick S. Davies

"An excellent book that is needed by all who are interested in growing citrus in Florida or elsewhere."--Florida Garden Guide

This concise, comprehensive guide combines the practical aspects of day-to-day citrus production with its underlying horticultural principles in a clear, easy-to-read style.

Citrus Growing in Florida makes citrus cultivation accessible to commercial growers, students, and home gardeners. The book covers planting, production, grove management, fertilization, spraying, and harvesting. For students of horticulture, it discusses the history of the crop, its varieties, propagation, and areas of production. For the homeowner, it provides practical advice on growing everything from tart lemons and tangy limes to the sweet oranges and thick juicy grapefruit that define the flavor of Florida.

Changes in the Florida citrus industry since publication of the third edition in 1990 make this revised work indispensable. Expanded and updated, this edition addresses new regulations, invasions from exotic insects and diseases, and increasing foreign competition. The appendix provides detailed information on citrus costs of production in various areas of the state. New chapters deal with global production, methods of marketing and selling fruit, and the importance of fruit quality for success in local and
worldwide markets.

Larry K. Jackson retired in 1994 as professor of horticultural sciences at the University of Florida, where he had taught for 32 years. He remains active in the Florida citrus industry and currently serves as scientific coordinator for the Florida Citrus Production Research Advisory Council.

Frederick S. Davies is professor of horticulture at the University of Florida, where he has taught for 20 years. He is co-author of the  book Citrus and has recently contributed an article to Horticultural Reviews.
