• Citrus belongs to the Rutaceae family.
  • India is the world's sixth-largest producer of citrus fruit.
  • Andhrapradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Gujrat, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Orissa, Bihar, and Assam are among the states where it is farmed.
  • Pectin is abundant in citrus peels.
  • Citrus fruit is also known as a plant that loves micronutrients.
  • Soils- Light loam well-drained soils are best for lemon cultivation.
  •  pH- 5.5-7.5. They can also grow in slightly alkaline and acidic soils.
  • Climate- Cold weather.
  • Temperature- Lemon trees prefer a warmer climate with an acceptable temperature range being between 12-20°C.
  • Depending on the season and soil type, citrus should be irrigated every 7 to 28 days.
  • Wet the soil to a depth of at least two feet from the tree's trunk to just beyond the drip line.
  • Leaf curling is the first indicator of water stress in a citrus tree.
  • Drip tubing with attached emitters is one of the best irrigation choices for lemon trees.
  • You wrap the tubing around the lemon tree in a cyclical pattern to keep the root ball and surrounding root spread wet.
  • Creating a circle basin is another irrigation option.
  • This soil ring, placed 2 feet away from the lemon tree's trunk, keeps water contained within the circle for optimal topsoil saturation.
  • This basin, however, should not clog the root ball or remain stagnant on the soil's surface; instead, the water should seep down into the soil for healthy and wet soil ecology.
  • In the middle of the pot, plant the seed about half an inch deep.
  • Using a spray bottle, carefully sprinkle the soil directly above the seed with water.
  • Standard-size citrus trees should be spaced 15 to 20 feet apart from their centers, whereas dwarf trees that have reached full size should be spaced 8 to 12 feet apart.
  • Citrus trees can be grown vertically or as espaliers in small areas.
