Growing Citrus Fruits How to Prune a Citrus Tree
Ok now then you are interested in keepingyour citrus tree looking pretty. How to prune it. Well I'm Richard Skinner and you are atHawkins Corner Nursery in Plant City, Florida and there are a lot of varieties of citrus.I'm standing in front of a very unique one that's become quite popular in the UnitedStates now called a Pomallo, or Pomelo. Depending on how you pronounce the word. But of courselike any citrus tree it needs some help. One of the things you want to do is take out thedead wood. As the old timers say. Whyé Well there's several different reasons but justtrust me you are better off to get the dead wood out. Now if you got a limb on a citrustree that's doing something that you don't
like, there's no problem with pruning it.If this limb for instance, is hanging way down we would want to prune it to make thegrowth to go up to the sun. The Pomelo is a very, very, large piece of fruit so consequentlyit makes a large tree. Small fruit like calamondins and kumquats are smaller trees. Tangerinevarieties for instance get a lots of die backs quite often so you have to clip it. But pruninga citrus tree is very important and you can do it twelve months out of the year. But thepreferable time is in the spring or the fall. You don't want to do it in the dead of winter,when you might have a real cold come on it and you don't want to do it necessarily inthe heavy summer just cause it's hot and you
simulate the tree wrongly. So if you do itin the spring or in the fall it's best. I'm Richard Skinner this is how to prune a citrustree. Thank you.
Precision Irrigation System Key to Sustainable Vineyard Management
During the growing season, irrigation is thefirst thing I think of when I wake up every morning and it's the thought I go to bedwith every night. It's the one thing we can really make an influence on in a day today basis. To irrigate a vineyard, you turn on a pump, open a valve, and every vine, potentiallythousands of vines per acre get the same amount of water. We wanted to see if we could actuallyirrigate down to the single vine level. Each of these control boxes controls water flowto the 32 vines that are in this row of this vineyard block. So basically what happens,the water comes in this green hose it goes into through a flow meter so we know how muchwater is going through. Into a distributor,
that distributes the water now evenly to alleight valves. Each of these valves will control water flow to one vine. If we can irrigatedown to each individual vine what that allows us to do is address the individual needs ofeach vine versus having to make decisions for the weak vines of have to make decisionsfor the vigorous vines and have to kind of apply a blanket irrigation plan. This allowsus to really really become much more precise with our agriculture.
