Litchi: Cultivation, Diseases and their Management

Mohd. Suhail (Author) Naushad Alam (Author) Mohd Rajik (Author)

The lychee (Litchi chinensis Sonn) an important sub-tropical evergreen fruit crop belonging to family Sapindaceae, is believed to have originated in China, where it has been grown in Southern Guangdong state for thousand of years. It is highly specific to climatic requirements and probably due to this reason its cultivation is restricted to few countries in the world. In India, lychee was introduced in the 18th century through Burma, and from there, it spread to many countries. We trust that those interested in litchi cultivation will find the information in this book useful and stimulating. This book is intended for students, teachers, and litichi breeders.
