      Feasibility of trunk diameter fluctuations in the scheduling of regulated deficit irrigation for table olive trees without reference trees  [Article]

      Corell González, Mireia; Martín Palomo, María José; Galindo Egea, A.; Torrecillas Melendreras, Arturo; Moreno Lucas, Félix; Moriana Elvira, Alfonso; Girón Moreno, Ignacio Francisco (Elsevier, 2015)
      Regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) results are affected by the actual water stress level reached during the treatments. The irrigation scheduling based on water status measurements, such as trunk diameter fluctuations, can ...

      Jujube fruit water relations at fruit maturation in response to water deficits  [Article]

      Galindo Egea, A.; Cruz, Z. N.; Rodríguez Hernández, Pedro; Collado González, Jacinta; Corell González, Mireia; Memmi, H.; Moreno Lucas, Félix; Moriana Elvira, Alfonso; Torrecillas Melendreras, Arturo; Pérez López, David (Elsevier, 2016)
      The fruit maturation stage is considered the optimal phenological stage for implementing water deficitin jujube (Zizyphus jujuba Mill.), since a low, moderate or severe water deficit at this time has no effect onyield, ...

      Low water stress conditions in table olive trees (Olea europaea L.) during pit hardening produced a different response of fruit and leaf water relations  [Article]

      Dell'Amico, José; Moriana Elvira, Alfonso; Corell González, Mireia; Girón Moreno, Ignacio; Morales, D.; Torrecillas Melendreras, Arturo; Moreno Lucas, Félix (Elsevier, 2012)
      The scarcity of water for agricultural use is producing a generalization of deficit irrigations in most of the fruit trees. Regulated deficit irrigation in olive trees is scheduled with a period of water stress during the ...

      New tools for regulated deficit irrigation scheduling in early maturing peach trees  [Presentation]

      Mellisho, C. D; Conejero Puente, Wenceslao; Ortuño Gallud, Mª Fernanda; Moriana Elvira, Alfonso; Galindo Egea, A.; Moreno Lucas, Félix; Torrecillas Melendreras, Arturo (Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, 2010)
      Regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) is an irrigation strategy designed to save water with a minimum impact on yield and fruit quality (Chalmers, 1989). In stone fruits trees two critical periods have been defined. The ...

      Pattern of trunk diameter fluctuations of almond trees in deficit irrigation scheduling during the first seasons  [Article]

      Corell González, Mireia; Girón Moreno, Ignacio Francisco; Andreu Cáceres, Luis; Trigo, E.; Torrecillas Melendreras, Arturo; Centeno, Ana; Pérez-López, D.; Moriana Elvira, Alfonso; López Moreno, Y.E.; Martín Palomo, María José (Elsevier, 2019)
      Irrigation needs in mature almond orchards are very high. Although almond trees grow in rainfed conditions, the yield response is very sensitive to irrigation. Continuous monitoring of the water status could be an adequate ...
