Citrus fruit number needs to be carefully managed and a strong supply of virtually all major and micronutrients is critical to fruit set and fruit number.
Application of fertilizer prior to flowering and then through to fruit set and early fruit fill is critical to maintain high numbers of fruit per tree.
Crop Nutrition and Citrus Fruit Number
Micronutrient deficiencies due to poor supply of iron, manganese and zinc, restrict fruit set and fruit number. It is important to ensure the tree has sufficient levels of these nutrients to maintain strong growth through flowering and fruit set. Good sulphur supply can increase fruit set in lemons, minimizing fruit drop.
