|Authors||Herbert John Webber, Leon Dexter Batchelor, Robert Willard Hodgson, Walter Tennyson Swingle, Walter Reuther and more|
The book was produced by scientists associated with the University of California Citrus Experiment Station, and contains fundamental information on the variety description and cost effectiveness of growing, as well technical support for citrus cultivation. The name reflects its aim to support the success of the citrus industry in all means. It is considered as the bible for citrus farming.
The book was originally published between the years 1943-1948, which is its first edition. It was revised in the 1960s by Walter Reuther with major reconstruction, and republished starting in 1976-1989. The Second Edition is much updated, but some interesting material was removed.
