Limitations and usefulness of maximum daily shrinkage (MDS) and trunk growth rate (TGR) indicators in the irrigation scheduling of table olive trees [Article]
Maximum daily trunk shrinkage (MDS) is the most popular indicator derived from trunk diameter fluctuations in most fruit trees and has been reported to be one of the earliest signs in the detection of water stress. However, ...
An index from sap flow records to schedule irrigation in super-high density olive orchards [Article]
(International Society for Horticultural Science, 2013)
Regulated deficit irrigation (RDI), recommended for super-high density (SHD) olive orchards, requires a precise control of irrigation. Water must be supplied on the phenological stages when the plant is most sensitive ...
Identification of the water stress level in olive trees during pit hardening using the trunk growth rate indicator. [Presentation]
Water scarcity is generating an increasing interest in deficit irrigation scheduling. The trunk diameter fluctuations are daily cycles that have been suggested as tools for irrigation scheduling. The trunk growth rate (TGR) ...
Comparison of the water potential baseline in different locations. Usefulness for irrigation scheduling of olive orchards [Article]
Deficit irrigation scheduling needs accurate indicators and in recent decades, continuous plant indicators have been developed. However, threshold values that could be useful in commercial orchards are not commonly reported. ...
Feasibility of trunk diameter fluctuations in the scheduling of regulated deficit irrigation for table olive trees without reference trees [Article]
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 ...
Midday stem water potential as a useful tool for estimating irrigation requirements in olive trees [Article]
Irrigation scheduling of fruit trees according to the water balance showed significant differences between locations. In recent years, water status measurements such as leaf water potential have been suggested as irrigation ...
