Role of Fertigation in horticultural Crops: Citrus

Abstract: Advances in micro-irrigation techniques, e.g., drip and under-tree sprinklers, have facilitated more widespread adoption of fertigation, especially for perennial crops, including citrus.

Evaluation of Controlled Release Fertilizers for Young Citrus Trees

Abstract: Controlled-release sources of N and K were compared with soluble sources on young ‘Valencia’ orange trees (Citrus sinensis [L.] Osb.). The effects of these fertilizers on leaf mineral concentration, soil chemical analysis, and tree growth were evaluated for 3 years.

Potassium nitrate fertilization and CRF increase yields of ORR type (easy peeler) citrus

An experiment was carried out on Kibbutz Naan in the years 2008 to 2013 with the goal of examining different fertilization programs for the OR (easy peeler) variety.
