Soil compaction in macadamia orchards



Soil compaction in macadamia orchards



Information Bulletin Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute ( 206): 6



Data are graphically presented on soil penetrometer resistances at various depths on the drip-line or at different distances from macadamia trees showing dieback and healthy trees in the same orchard. On the drip-line of affected trees, soil penetrometer resistances at a depth of 35 cm rose sharply, indicating a marked increase in soil clay content; with healthy trees, however, the rise in penetrometer resistance with increasing depth was gradual.
