The soil should be as nearly of the same wetness at both ends of the furrow as it is possible to get it, because § 22 CITRUS FRUITS UNDER IRRIGATION 15 an excessive quantity of water at any point is detrimental. Too often an excessive quantity collects at the ends of the furrows and in such instance the trees show the effects of improper treatment; they are stunted, sickly, and yellow of leaf. Too much water is as bad as too Httle, as it crowds out the air and packs the soil. A tree cannot be expected to live
