Improving Citrus Yield and Quality through Bio-stimulate use

In terms of international trade and importance, citrus fruits are the highest-value fruit crop, with more than 140 countries worldwide contributing to citrus production. As the market competition strengthens fruit values decrease in relation to overall supply; to maintain economic sustainability, citrus producers are continuously evaluating and implementing management strategies to reduce input costs to maximise their revenue. In production areas facing water deficits such as Australia, the use of biostimulants in crop management is becoming a popular way to improve yield and quality.
