Water Management Is Key for California Citrus Growers
Citrus Extension agents Chris Oswalt and Steve Futch recently traveled to California with a group of Florida citrus growers. Their goal was to learn more about California’s citrus industry by visiting growers, a packinghouse, research center and the World Ag Expo. Oswalt summarizes the major differences he saw between California and Florida citrus production. He also discusses issues of importance to California citrus growers, including water availability, irrigation management, freeze protection and more.
