Sites with a favourable aspect and appropriate soils must be selected, avoiding the situations in which a continuous supply of inputs will be necessary. For instance, frost pockets (areas with high risk for frost), poor drainage and shallow non-moisture retentive soils, very saline soils or soils with a very high active CaCO3 content must be avoided.

Assess nematodes and other soil plant pathogens before planting.

Citrus species or varieties adapted to cold weather, and/or less susceptible to fruit damage due to its harvest time,should be used in areas with frequent frost risks.
