Du Roi Nursery is fully accredited with the SA Citrus Improvement Programme, which in turn is regulated by the Citrus Growers Association of Southern Africa. Du Roi Nursery is presently the largest citrus nursery in Southern Africa and supplies plants to most areas in the region. A service covering all aspects of pre- and post planting advice is offered to clients, covering issues such as cultivar and rootstock choice, planting densities, soil preparation, irrigation, fertilization and young tree care.
In order to continue upholding the high standards of plant quality, a number of citrus experts and institutions are regularly consulted or used for advice on aspects such as cultivars, rootstocks, fertilization, pests and diseases.
The Nursery has also developed techniques and protocols for commercial production of clonal citrus rootstock cuttings – providing customers with greater uniformity in tree performance. Furthermore, the Nursery has erected specific greenhouse structures for the production of certified greening- and black spot free citrus trees.
