Citrus Grower Sees Results with Slow-Release Fertilizer
Pete Spyke, citrus grower and co-owner of The Orange Shop in Citra, hosted AgNet Media’s staff for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of his retail shop and gift-fruit shipping business. He detailed the history of the operation and led the staff on a tour of the packinghouse and test-plot grove.
Spyke explained his use of integrated pest management and lack of foliar sprays as a means of evaluating which citrus varieties and rootstocks can best withstand HLB. He also discussed the role slow-release fertilizer plays in tree health.
