The New High Planting Method In Florida
« on: September 09, 2018, 08:59:17 PM »
At Cherylake groves'

Traditionally Citrus trees have been planted at around 100 trees per acre.  Today new groves on Cherrylake’s farm are planted at a minimum of 300 trees per acre with plans for a new grove this fall planted at 1,000 trees per acre.

Is this because they know the trees will die small from greening,so want to pack a lot of small trees onto a lot to maximize production before having to replant?
