Bloksma, Joke (2000) Soil management in organic fruit growing. Paper at: Symposium Organic Fruit HRI / EMRA / ADAS, Wye College, Ashford (Kent), 16-17 October 2000.
In the EU-standards you will find a period of three years for converting your orchard from conventional into organic. But conversion of your way of thinking about the orchard system and conversion of your root system and soil will take double time. The focus must change from curative to preventive. Production, growth regulation, fertilisation, undergrowth, weed control and water management all come together in the overall soil management.
