Avocado, Citrus, Minor Subtropicals

Ben Faber covers issues of soil management by way of fertilizer, irrigation, and erosion control. In tree crops he works primarily in avocado, cherimoya, litchi, longan, and citrus.


The U.C. Cooperative Extension Farm Advisors have combined to publish this quarterly combined newsletter. It will emphasize citrus and avocado, but will also discuss the minor subtropicals.
