Proper care stress for citrus fruit plants

July 26, 2021

LAHORE:The Punjab Agriculture Department has advised the citrus fruit growers to ensure proper arrangements for drainage of rainwater to protect the plants from adverse effects of monsoon weather.

A spokesman for the department said on Sunday, "If rainwater stays in gardens for more than 24 to 36 hours, it leaves a negative impact on the roots of the plants, ultimately leading to their decay.” All drains in the gardens should be kept clean so that water flow towards big drains could be ensured, he added. He said that during the rainy season diseases spread rapidly so pesticides should be sprayed following the guidelines.
