This vintage volume contains a complete guide to fruit production, with information on propagation, planting, spacing, grafting, budding, harvesting, and all other related aspects. Extensive yet accessible, “Modern Fruit Production” constitutes a valuable resource for both beginners and that with more experience, and is not to be missed by the discerning collector. Contents include: “The Fruit Industry”, “The Plant and its Parts”, “Factors Affecting Flower Formation”, “Site and Soil for the Fruit Plantation”, “Laying Out and Planting the Orchard”, “Cultural Practices”, “Fertilizers and Manures for the Orchard”, “Water Relations of Fruit Plants”, “Fruit Setting”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on growing fruit.
