Chemical composition of soil, leaves and fruits in samples from sweet cherry orchards in Ullensvang, Western Norway

Meldinger fra Norges Landbrukshogskole 61(21): 15

Chemical composition of soil, leaves and fruits in samples from sweet cherry orchards in Ullensvang, Western Norway

Analyses are presented for 20 orchards of the cherry cvs Emperor Francis and Van sampled in 1980. Average leaf contents, as % dry matter, were 2.63% N, 0.29% P, 1.81% K, 1.38% Ca and 0.42% Mg; Mn and Zn contents were 84 and 31 p.p.m. of dry matter, respectively. Leaves of Van contained more N, P, Ca, Mg and Mn but less K and Zn than those of Emperor Francis. Soil and leaf contents of P and Mg were high but K, Ca and pH levels were below optimum; leaf N was optimum.
