"This book is an excellent compilation of modern science and traditional wisdom
and attempts to provide best possible management solutions for optimum productivity in
diffrent fruit crops, largely relying on on-farm input management approaches.
Recommendations on use of multiple nutrient sources in combination with intercrops, green
manures and cover crops and multiple application through soil application and foliar
feeding are most outstanding features.... Pest management solutions largely based on IPM
approaches while relying on ecological engineering tools such as diversified plant stand,
protection of beneficial insects and use of standard biopesticides, goes further to
provide substitute for chemical pesticides, that too from on-farm resources with farmer's
own interventions... The details of technology and package of practices provided in this
book are just not the compilation of literature, but is an outcome of long association of
the authors with the fruit science, organic farming and practicing organic farmers in the
country.... I congratulate the authors for their effort in bringing out very useful
information on different aspects of organic production of fruit crops in one volume for
the benefit of extension workers, trainers, organic farming promoters and farmers
interested in organic production of fruit crops..."
