Temperate fruit and nut species require exposure to chilling conditions in winter to break dormancy and produce high yields. Adequate winter chill is an important site characteristic for commercial orchard operations, and quantifying chill is crucial for orchard management. Climate change may impact winter chill. With a view to adapting orchards to climate change, this review assesses the state of knowledge in modelling winter chill and the performance of various modelling approaches.
This guide covers multiple states and production areas. Pest problems vary across the Southeast. Pesticide rates are a guideline. Exceptions are noted for specific locations and pests, but this guide does not list every exception. Listed pesticides may not be registered for the uses recommended here in all states.
The southeastern peach industry is known for the high quality of its fresh peaches. As a new peach season approaches, it is time to ready the packinghouse for output of the best peach product. Several areas in the packing facility should be considered.

Enhancing the Productivity of Early Grande Peaches under Northern Sinai Conditions via Supplemental Irrigation and Organic Fertilization
This study was carried out during two successive seasons (2009/2010 and 2010/2011) on ten years old of Early Grande peach trees. All trees are grown in a sandy soil that budded on non-bitter almond rootstock planted at 5 x 5 meters under rainfall condition in irrigation. Fifty four experimental trees, that grown in a private orchard at El Hosinat, Rafah, North Sinai Gov., Egypt, were chosen of normal growth and uniformly in shape and size to apply this study.
