The author began his quest with an honest question: “How did our great-grandparents manage to grow good fruit, in the days when everyone was an organic grower, before we sprayed our trees with pesticides and fungicides?” Phillips combines the half-forgotten wisdom of a century ago with the latest scientific knowledge about pests that can plague apples and other fruit trees. Whether you are a commercial orchardist, organic farmer, backyard enthusiast, or apple lover you will enjoy this very thorough guide to state-of-the-art organic orcharding. A diversity of topics include orchard site and its climate; enriching the soil; tree selection and planting; caring for the orchard; pests and diseases; harvesting and marketing; tasks, source lists and more.
