It is not the purpose of this circular to set down hard and fast rules on the planting and care of fruit in South Dakota. Our climatic and soil conditions vary so much that no single plan can be made that will apply to all sections. The tastes of families and of individuals within families vary so greatly that growers should be given some choice in the selection of varieties. This publication is not for the commercial fruit grower, but rather for the person who is not an expert in the growing of fruit and who desires to get an orchard started or correct the faults in his old one. It is written merely to give the beginner suggestions and it is hoped that at least some good will be derived from it by those who use it. (See more in text).
