The Openfields library holds materials on various aspects of pomology, fruit husbandry, and crop protection, and also on fruit production and marketing of quality fruit. Climate is a significant factor in the distribution of commercially grown fruits, as are soils, nutrients and water. Fruit husbandry practices include propagation, pruning and training.
In the UK, top fruit refers principally to orchard-grown apples and pears; the industry also produces a wide variety of soft fruit.
For materials on machinery for fruit growing, see also under Equipment.
