Monthly Grove Update

2nd Quarter 2013 Grove Update

We finished up all of our fruit harvesting in June. The grove had some issues with fruit drop on Early/Mid oranges this year, as did most of the citrus industry, but we fared pretty well overall. The fruit quality this past season was very good. We are now in the middle of summer and are trying to spray constantly to keep Asian Citrus Psyllid, Citrus Leafminer, Rust Mite, and other pests and diseases under control as much as possible. With all the rain we have had in the last month, it is hard to keep up with all the timing of sprays but we have been getting it done with long days. Rain has been plentiful this year so far and that helps keep the fruit on and not stress the trees. Hopefully this is a good sign that we will have a good fruit crop for the 2013/2014 picking season.
