Relationship between leaf N concentrations and olive yields Conference Paper uri icon


  • Within an olive orchard there is a huge productivity difference among individual trees. Also the alternate bearing pattern of this species is well documented. These aspects, as well as other like pruning, make difficult the interpretation of plant analysis results. In Ibis work, we made a simple exercise based upon the results from 48 individual-trees for two consecutive years. Groups of 12 similar young trees were submitted to four different soil management systems, influencing e nutritional status and productivity.
