Egyptian citrus growers benefit from foliar nutrient applications

Egypt is a citrus export force which has spurred new, extensive planting over large areas. Export markets include the EU, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the Eastern Block, and far eastern countries such as China, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, and Japan. Viable export, however, requires superlative quality characterized by the absence of fruit markings, high juice content, a favourable skin finish and skin to pulp relationship, and the desired total soluble solids to acid ratio. Therefore, attaining enhanced quality and production standards for citrus in Egypt represents a new challenge for growers who are used to a far from fastidious, but low-paying local market.
