The Law of the Minimum Nutrient" means that in citrus trees, as in other crops, the growth of the plant is limited by the nutrient element present in the smallest quantity, even if all other nutrients are present in adequate amounts. It is of the utmost importance in citrus production to know which, if any, nutrient element is the limiting factor. If there is a deficiency of any nutrient, then the fertilizer program must remedy this.

Soil plays the role of a growing medium for perennial, deep-rooted citrus trees.
