Modern orchards are being developed with small (dwarf) trees at close spacing. The proper distance for setting the trees varies with the variety selected and the fertility and water-holding capacity of the soil.
The “Illustrated Guide to Soil Taxonomy” is presented in four parts, each covering a specific aspect of the USDA’s soil classification system (Soil Taxonomy). It is a PDF document designed for use on a PC, tablet, or smart phone. Each part contains many internal links, and bookmarks are provided for the major items in each part.
