Experience Sharing—Manual for the Ecological Cultivation of Citrus Fruit Trees


PCD launched an organic agriculture programme at a fishing village in Yangshou County of Guangxi in 2012 in which the skills and technology for ecological cultivation of local fruit trees was introduced to the villagers. The programme was conducted in collaboration with a Guilin health centre. The farming experience of a dozen ecological farmers is documented in our Manual for the Ecological Cultivation of Citrus Fruit Trees. The manual also introduces methods to improve the soil and to produce organic fertiliser and liquid nutrients, results of experiments in ecological cultivation of fruit trees, ecological farming experience in pest and disease prevention, and thoughts and reflections of the farmers. This manual can be a useful reference for organic farming in other areas.
