Product Description

Modern Fruit Science has been prepared primarily for undergraduate fruit and nut growing courses in colleges.  The authors have made a special attempt to make the book not only complete and technically accurate but interesting and easy-to-read so it can be used as a text or reference in technical courses and in home gardens.  The first and third chapters generally refer to all deciduous tree fruits to be discussed.  The early chapters are devoted to the apple since it is grown widely and has the most research background.  The apple chapters cover planting to marketing.  Then, there are two general chapters covering irrigation, pest and frost control.  Each of the important small fruits or groups of small fruits is covered in a single chapter complete in itself.

Contents:  Apple regions, production & cultivars, Establishing the planting, Training & pruning, Soil management, Flowering, pollination & fruit set, Thinning & alternate bearing, Grafting & budding, Freezing injury, Harvesting, packing & processing, Storage, Marketing, Pear & Quince culture, Peach, nectarine, apricot & almond, Plums, Cherry culture, Edible nuts, Other tree fruit, Control of insects & diseases, Frost & drought, Grape growing, Strawberry growing, Bush fruits, Home fruit garden tips.
