New Publication on Soil Health and Site Selection for Fruit Production

ATTRA has a new publication for you to help develop sustainable and profitable fruit tree, bush, or vine production. "Soils and Sites for Organic Orchards and Vineyards" contains useful information about site selection and soil preparation for organic fruit plantings.

It also describes cover crop and mulching options for orchards and vineyard floors, and discusses fertilization and the role of mycorrhizae in maintaining healthy fruit plants.

The publication is available for free on the ATTRA website at attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/summaries/summary.php?pub=588.
